64bit .Net? v2.0 only - nearly...

Came across this interesting blog entry.
By default v1.0 and v1.1 apps will only run in the 32bit mode on 64bit Windows.
And even if you force 64bit mode, using a 64bit loader/wrapper, it will only stay 64bit if there are no 32bit dependancies.
Kinda logical, but it would have been nice if they'd used some kind of 64-32bit glue, so 64bit apps could have 32bit dependancies.
Isn't that how Win9x worked with it's 16bit parts?
