Why there is no 64-bit DEB package for Kinetis Design Studio?

Why Freescale does not offer a 64-bit DEB package for Kinetis Design Studio? It is very inconvenient having to keep both a 32-bit and 64-bit Java Development Kits, not to mention the probable performance hit from not using x86-64-specific instructions.

 

SEGGER offers DEB Installer 64-bit version of their J-Link drivers and I think Freescale should do the same for KDS, specially given that virtually all desktops now run 64-bit processors and probably most Debian based GNU/Linux installs are also 64-bit.
