The current x86-64 has both 32-bit and 64-bit "mashed together," so
that
sort of configuration would be more of the same.

Well, it's currently only half-mashed.

In Fedora 12, the i686 and x86-64 rpms are in the same directory, on
the x86-64 DVD ISO.

That's sufficiently mashed for my purposes, but whatever... :)

Look closer. It is only a small subset of the i686 content in the x86_64
repo for multilib purposes.

That's merely a space issue, not any failure to or absence of "mash"

Wow. Ok let me be clear here. The 32 bit packages you see are specifically selected to fulfill a multilib role. We cannot put every package in as there would be lots of conflicts in the packages that are nit suitable for multilib.

Please stop making assumptions about our compose process and strategy which you clearly don't understand.
