Thanks, that explanation helped. Silly me misunderstood this part:

	Apple will contribute most of the key components, tools and
	technology required for a Java SE 7 implementation on Mac OS X,
	including a 32-bit and 64-bit HotSpot-based Java virtual machine,

to mean that Java on MacOSX will continue to be a universal binary.

Thank you for helping a weak of mind!
