As long as 32 bit software still runs on the respective operating systems, I see no need. But maybe Apple has announced that 32 bit software will soon stop working?

They haven't announced anything like that as far as I know.  But we
know they are always aggressively pushing forward and dropping any
perceived "legacy" support.

A more immediate problem might be that LLVM has trouble compiling
Einstein.  At the moment, Apple still provides a GCC, but who knows
how much longer that will last.
