I've used openSUSE (i586) with the same configuration and packages installed and eg. Firefox 3 was started in < 1 sec. I have no benchmarks but everything runs faster and is more responsible.

I'm afraid you're going to have to come up with hard scientific evidence to convince anyone. Firefox 3 startup is probably dominated by disk I/O anyways (all those dynamic libraries it has to load). Still, It would be a fun experiment to run. Compute the cold (i.e. just after boot) startup time of firefox, then recompiles all of its dependencies (all the way down to glibc) with i586, reboot, and recomputes. To be honest, I'd be surprised if you had even one tenth of a second of difference.
