I'm sure QA is more than capable of speaking for themselves :)
Stephen is right, dropping i686 would save us a considerable amount of time. We definitely
devote most of our effort to x86_64, but i686 testing is not negligible.
But even though I would appreciate having less work to do (who wouldn't), I don't
want to imply Desktop SIG should drop i686 images. That's up to them to decide, based
on many other factors. I don't personally don't have any strong opinion on that,
when I try to look at it without my QA hat on.
