There is a long-standing debate on how to handle this.

The problem is that requiring the i386 RPM packages means that the
system has to pull in the 32-bit versions of all its dependencies,
including glibc.i386. On systems that want to be purely 64-bit, we don't
want to force them to have all these extra pieces.

There are several bugs open in RPM and yum to try to figure out how to
solve this correctly. Unfortunately I can't locate the BZs right now.
