Not really, all we can see is that everyone is impatient for the latest and greatest, whether 64bit or not. Until the 32bit edition was released, there were constant posts on when is it coming, why is it not here yet. I even got impatient enough for the RC that I wrote a tutorial on upgrading jaunty to gloria manually. Give the team some credit, they got an RC ready in 10 days, and a really solid distro out within a month of the base being updated, and it's been just over a week since then. Bear in mind that unlike canonical, they don't have massive reserves of cash to support lots of devs full time, it's a relatively small team of part-timers putting together the best linux distro. I'm sure they would be happy for someone to step up and say "I'll take care of the 64 bit release, so that it can be released simultaneously in future" but as of now, nobody has done that.
