Because on saner arches 64bit variant means just 64bit registers, not
more registers and less cruft as for the x86_64

You end up paying a bit more address load and other tasks and most of
the apps don't use 64bit in an efficient way...

(64bit variants usually gets less attention and usually are less
maintained btw)
