in 6-12 month the situation will not be different than now. 

So you can go 64 bit now. For flash and wmv files install firefox-bin and 
mplayer-bin and you are covered. Waiting is just a waste of time - install 
now and reinstall in 6 month.. why? That is one superflous installation you 
do not need to do.
