The value of 64-bit vs 32-bit

About a month or so ago I'd said I'd start looking into writing a
section for LFS that deals with pros/cons of using full 64-bit
libs/binaries in Linux, since LFS is considering adding in 64-bit support.
I came across this article:
and several other articles from people who at various times benchmarked
performance with 32-bit vs 64-bit on the same hardware.
Just two quick questions:
* Any comments on the details provided in the above article,
specifically in how that might relate to LFS?
* If you were to benchmark 32-bit vs 64-bit on an LFS system, what would
your tests include?
