standard runtime for (possible/hopeful) 64bit kernels


Hypothetic NetBSD/powerpc64 and NetBSD/mips64
will be bi-architecture OSes like sparc64 and amd64
where 32bit binaries work just as 64bit natives
out-of-box.  I wonder NetBSD would follow L* way for

- standard userlands will be 32bit while kernel run
in 64bit mode, with provision of 64bit application
runtime and development.  It's like 64it Solaris / IRX.
Is my understanding correct?
