The idea was that the R3900 option would transform eventually into
general R3000 support. While that hasn't happened, there are still
some R3000 based devices out there, so the option is still useful.
MIPS32/64 are architecture sub-variants developed by MIPS for embedded

I guess, as it has turned out, the two examples of this could probably
be pushed out as you suggest. However, as examples of a design
principle that we would like to preserve, they probably ought to stay
where they are. If that makes sense.
