Can we we 100% sure it does no harm, even on other archs than i386?

the advantage of working around a known issue for what is still a small 
group of users.

Not as it is documented now, but that could be improved in the run-up to 
the release of Sarge (errata, release notes, manual?).
Maybe it is time to start formulating a policy on what type of issues 
should be documented in which document and how these should be
