The tools to do respins help when we invariably run into bugs that needs to be fixed or when folks want to redistribute Fedora with the updates included. The existence of bugs only justifies the need for more QA and a community effort would require that you contribute back by helping to fix the bugs by participating in such efforts. It is a collective responsibility. Join the QA team, report bugs, help triage bugs etc.

Correct me if I'm wrong but would it be enought to simple change the "default" kernel architecture line
in the installation process to I686 and rebuild the image..

A updated ISO was indeed released anyway. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/FC6Common
Be it as it may you still have to download the ISO in the first place so it doesnt matter if you download a re-spin or not
which *smashed* the bugs that "slipped through" in the initial release....

That's only true if it is a installer issue. Otherwise the updates do fix the problem in the initial release.

More options means more complication which means more things can go wrong.

It depends on how you expose the options. If you are willing to do the respins as part of Fedora, you are most welcome to do so.
