Installing both arches is asking for a great deal of trouble with

Unfortunately, the default Fedora and RHEL configuration do the asking. (And
yum installs all archs by default.)

you can choose an arch, though.

specifying arches in yum is supported and if you really don't want the
other arch add excludes int your yum.conf.

works just fine.


So why isn't a single arch, with appropriate excludes, the default configuration for yum?

Executables for a single arch is most certainly what the majority of end-users need.
