While I don't have a definitive opinion on the ordering of the menu choices, I definitively think amd64 should be picked by default on amd64 architectures. Especially since multiarch, there's no good reason left for installing i386 on amd64-capable machines AFAIK. Now, the ideal would be to use syslinux' ifcpu/ifcpu64 c32 modules to determine the menu order depending on the machine (see ): no "64 bit" option on 32 bit machines, "hidden or down the menu" "32 bit" option on 64 bit-capable machines. I'd be happy to iron out some proposals during DebConf, if that idea seems interesting. OdyX  https://bugs.debian.org/707844#45
