I think we had a very long thread about this last release... The
sleeves were adjusted last release to read:

"For Intel-compatible PCs" -- (for i386/i686/whatever_we_call_it_today)
"For 64-bit Intel-compatible PCs" -- (for x86_64)

The original "i386" and "x86_64" were cryptic to people who are just
trying out Linux for the first time using Fedora.  "32-bit" doesn't
add anything for the average user who needs it, because he probably
doesn't know the difference between that and 64-bit.  Meanwhile, that
"For Intel-compatible PCs" disc just works everywhere.  If he does
know the difference, the "64-bit" label on the x86_64 sleeve makes it
clear.

Just my take.  If we want more explanation, I would think it would be
smaller and de-emphasized in the sleeve art, but that's something
that's up to the folks who know good design better than I. :-)
