So, I conclude that waiting some time before actually trying to install 64bit 
on my machine is a good idea?

 What do you think, can I expect support for my graphic-card provided by a 
64bit-X-Server at some time in the future, as some of the older Matrox-cards 
are supported in 32 bit?

Yes, especially some parts of its documentation where wrong, I trapped into 
some problems when installing it.
