Are there any rumors about the likelihood of a 64 bit thick client for TRIM 7?
Would anyone care to speculate if the performance gains at the client side would warrant development of a 64 bit version for Windows 7?

I'll have a crack at your second question. I'd dare say none.
Building a 64bit version of any application removes the memory limitation of the 32bit address space.
The TRIM Client is not a memory intensive application, so building a version of TRIM that could use more memory if it needed it would seem an exercise with no benefit. Wouldn't you agree? Maybe if TRIM gets a bunch of client side processing features that require more memory then there would be a need.
Having said that I think that HP will build one, purely for perception. How many times has the IT guru in your organisation put up a roadblock like "is it 64bit?" with no understanding as to what that means or whether the application would even use it?

Office 2010 applications in 64 bit have the ability to run 32bit addin's. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee68179
At the moment your justification for 64 bit TRIM is exactly what I've said above. It has to be 64 bit because everything else is.
