It couldn't be simple and consistent, could it?

Regarding your points a) the majority of new machines since Windows 7 do
have an x64 OS and b) true (in fact it would be fantastic if people didn't
even had to know there is an OS, like in many other devices)

I just tested on a Ubuntu 14.04 x64 machine and doing a "file soffice.bin"
(located in /usr/lib/libreoffice/program) does report it is 64bit
I can confirm that LibreOffice (from the ppa) does not mention x64
in the About dialog box.

Sorry for assuming there was some logic :)
