I expect that BIOS and/or OS often don't even allow that (e.g., user-space
VM addresses are limited to 31 bits in Win32).  I started working on 64-bit
machines in the late 70's, so it's hard to believe that people still think
that's a big deal.  It's normal to me <wink -- although Crays at the time
had 24-bit address registers!>.
