Is it possible to do one without the other?  It would be nice if the
names of the ISOs could be changed now to reduce user confusion over
whether it can install on their machine.  Having an i386 basearch is
probably less visible to most people.  Both changes should be made
eventually but people may be too busy right now to do both.
