Well there may be some misunderstanding here; that's two separate things:
 * dual arch hosts both 32bit and 64bit installs, of which you decide
on install;
 * 64bit DVD is a full install DVD for 64bit architectures - yes,
there are some 32bit dependencies still used, but there are fewer of
them; the intent/direciton is a pure 64bit thing - whatever time it

Ennael tells me we ought to re-explain what is expected in these
formats. But of course, after beta1, we will hold a survey to sort
through expectations of the final formats we will release in June.
