We've got http://torrent.fedoraproject.org:6969/ and
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Statistics (but the latter doesn't break
things down by arch sadly).

<UX hat on>
I think that from a UX perspective, having a least-common-denominator
as a download default makes sense. Think of the person that downloads
Fedora for a older netbook that doesn't have a 64-bit processor (but
they might not know this). They think "geez, this Fedora thing sucks!"
With 32-bit as the default, that use case works. If you really know
that you want 64-bit, then you can go get it with two clicks instead
of one (as the site exists today)

This comes up *every single release* it seems like. I think that the
web team did an exceptional job of redesigning the website, let's not
go belittle their work. It's perfectly easy to use and easy to find
what you're looking for, IMO.
