Emanuele, can we *please* stay on list?!?!?! I explained it already
why. Other people might find the answers in this thread interesting,
too, and replying to private emails is not good, and in addition 
breaks netiquette.

Yes, it is still like that that the automatically detected platform
cannot be removed.

I am not sure what the best step further now is, but we have
to either change the detection routine if we want the 64bit binries to
be the efault on those machines, or we have to change tlmgr to switch
the main arch somehow.

I will look into that.

You should read the texlive list (one reason why I asked to stay on list
is that all the inforamtion should be there).

That has been announced quite some time ago, you have to either
	install --reinstall
all those packages, or make a complete new installation of mactex.
We are in prerelease testing.
