I would be inclined to treat 32-bit as a future porting target (alongside SPARC and ARM and PPC), not a present requirement.

By that I mean don't knowingly cut off the option, but also don't expend much effort on it, unless it helps us understand some other problem more deeply.

(Maybe porting to small platforms sooner rather than later will help us understand how well our designs can be shrunk?)
