I wouldn't use a wikipedia article that only cites sources from after 2008 
(and most of them actually after the after-the-fact invention of "ia32") 
for an architecture that exists since 1985 as sensible source for 
supporting either point of view ;-)  It totally lacks references to 
config.guess which IMHO is a much better source of "how to call an 
architecture" :)

Anyway, I've said the things I had to say, crouching back under my stone 
:)


Ciao,
Michael.
