Sorry, I shouldn't have said it that way.

What I should have said was: it's nice to have a sparc port, but sparc isn't
important enough to hold up the i386 release and especially not important
enough to cancel i386 slink. It simply wouldn't make sense.
For the record, I do appreciate the sparc port -- I ran it on my workstation
at my last job.
