I would have thought that the i486-specific parts of the kernel are stable, and haven't been changed in years. As long as Linux supports 32-bit CPUs of one variety or another; the only overhead would be regression testing. I am certain that is automated, so why remove the support?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
