We could at least mention the supported blob architectures in the long
Description. And we could reenable shipping i386+amd64 blobs for 304xx,
given that this seems to be broken on i386, so it might be reasonable to
expect i386 userspace with a amd64 kernel there ...

Oh, where did you get that info from?
