Ditto to Greg's comments.

At the end of the day if you've shown the business that you've done due 
diligence with enough user and system testing, including having a parallel 
virtualised 32-bit farm for validating issues that may arise from time to time, 
in my opinion there's no reason why it shouldn't go into production.

Cheers,
Jeremy.

FRx runs fine on x64.

Force the install into "Program Files" rather than "Program Files (x86)".

they shouldn't say "not supported on x64".  the reality is they don't support 
it at all.
