Boot Camp now supports 64-bit?

I just saw this on Macrumors, but didn't see anything on Apple.com.
Do you think they will offer this capability for all Macs or just the MAc Pros? Any reason why they wouldn't offer it for all Macs? This interested me b/c I am currently using my 32-bit XP on an older machine, but want to change from Vista to XP on my MBP using my 64-bit copy of XP..
I also saw that MS is going to relax their licensing restrictions to use certain versions of Vista on virtual machines. I wonder if the 2 are in any way related. Also, the service pack 3 for XP that is in the works."Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others"

Thanks for that news. I'm also hoping they relax the requirements so I
can use 64-bit bootcamp on my 2006 C2D iMac. I really can't believe
they didn't design it without 64-bit bootcamp in mind.
I wonder if they're going to do the same thing as with the 802.11n driver
and the iPod Touch, and charge extra for the new "features".
