You wouldn't be making that argument if it were arch/arm64 and arch/arm32 -
you'd probably be arguing that "arm" made perfect sense.

Don't get too hung up on names please, it's really not worth the time
and effort being soo pedantic, and being soo pedantic leads to "pointless
churn" when someone comes along and wants to pedantically change the
names because it no longer matches the users.
