In this page, the official RPi3 announcement states:

You’ll need a recent NOOBS or Raspbian image from our downloads page. At launch, we are using the same 32-bit Raspbian userland that we use on other Raspberry Pi devices; over the next few months we will investigate whether there is value in moving to 64-bit mode.

My question is, given that the processor is 64 bits, isn't it obvious that running the OS in 64 bits will be better in every way? What am I missing?
