It's somehow clear I thankfully won't need to upgrade to cygwin64 until later,

While you don't need to do it, you'll have to re-install Cygwin anyway, and frankly, installing 32-bit Cygwin from scratch, on a 64-bit Windows machine, just seems excessively nostalgic.

You're already removing so much cruft --- why let yourself be tied to the past by sticking with 32-bit Cygwin?

I mean it seems I'll be able to still use my 32 bit cygwin after I upgrade to 64 bit Windows 10,

Unlikely. You'll have to do a complete re-install to fix up all the file permissions and regsitry entries.
