Office 2010 64-bit deployed via Remote Desktop Services RemoteApp

We are implementing Microsoft Remote Desktop Services and RemoteApps with Microsoft Office 2010.  Microsoft strongly recommends their 32-bit version of Office 2010, mostly to maintain compatibility with their and 3rd-party add-ons (and we use a few for Outlook).

My question is about using Office 2010 64-bit applications as RemoteApps, and it might be a bit difficult to articulate, but here goes.

Does the 64-bit edition provide better memory usage and management when multiple user instances of Office applications are open on the RDS host?  That is, is the application's ability to address extra memory specific to each user's instance of a remoteapp, or does the 64-bit edition manage the multiple instance memory collectively?

I am guessing that the 64-bit edition memory usage applies only to each individual user instance--i.e., if 30 users are each editing a separate 1.5GB Excel file, then the 64-bit edition will not provide any better memory utilization or management than the 32-bit edition.

Can anyone confirm this, or provide more information?

Thank you.

I have found zero information on this question.

We are proceeding with 64-bit Office 2010 on our Remote Desktop Services server.  Fortunately, the two Outlook add-ons we use support 64-bit Outlook.
