Re: Opportunity to get rid of 32bit silicon?

"I could see this as a good opportunity to strip all of this crap out to have a pure 64bit CPU."

Then you could replace it with a totally different architecture anyway, since you'd need 64bit software as well. Most software is still 32-bit in whole or partially. The 32-bit subsystem in Windows can be disabled but most software will just stop working / won't install.
