Where workload seems to be something other than "light desktop use"
or even "light server use". Is there any <=1GB of RAM case 
where it helps at all? Besides, anyone sane running a memory
intensive app will get a x86_64 box where the 4:4 kludgery is not needed.

Only good I've seen it do is uncovering driver bugs, which is a worthy goal 
I suppose.
