No. Anyone should be able to create snap based images for 32-bit
devices if they wish. However, I think as only new devices coming to
market at this point are really going to be 64-bit, the goal is to only
support 64-bit for official device images. For example, see the
discussions previously about no longer building final release ISOs of
Ubuntu for i386, or how there haven't been ones for PowerPC for a while
now. However, both of those architectures are still built in the
archive, and some derivatives still build releases for those

Granted, certain applications in the snap store may end up not being
available on i386 or armhf, if the developers decide not to build for
those architectures, but that is a separate issue from being able to
port a device.
