Wouldn't the wordsize be better associated with the processor family?

So  solaris.sparc32, windows.x86, linux.ppc32, and so on.

Maybe in some components we would want to include a window manager
family too, though let's cross that bridge...

I had a quick hunt round for a recognized standard or convention for OS
and CPU family names, but it seems there are enough subtle differences
around that we should just define them for ourselves.
