I'm not sure it's a solution Debian can advertise.

That's not the point (and tbh, I don't run any i386 kernel anyway). But
we do have users which will have issues, and we do have a -bigmem kernel
which can be used for needing users. So yes I agree a way to propose the
-bigmem to users needing it would be nice, but I don't think setting it
the default kernel would work. But I basically see i386 as “the kernel
of the last chance”.
