I doubt that ILP64 could be made to work.  8-, 16-, 32- and 64-bit  
'int's are all important in some place or another.  I think all  
popular 64-bit architectures come with C compilers that implement  
LP64 by default, Cray/UNICOS weirdness notwithstanding (but there the  
C compiler is one of the lesser of your worries ;-).

This is great stuff!  Does someone (or some wiki page) have a final  
version of the '64-FAQ' with all the deltas applied that I can copy  
to squeakvm.org?
