remove i386 from foreign arch on server install?

Hey all,
I just did an ISO server install of trusty server, and I end up with
'i386' in the output of:
$ dpkg --print-foreign-architectures
i386

I really wish we'd have done it earlier, but I really think that most of
the time this is just a waste of network traffic on 'apt-get update' on a
server. If people want i386 packages on amd64, its trivial for them to
re-enable it.

What do people think about removing this?
Does anyone have a use case where this is important, and is not easily
worked around just by doing:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
