Windows 7: Question about the Windows 7 Product Keys

Windows 7 7100 x64

The windows 7 RC keys work for both x86 and x64, so it's a pretty safe bet that keys for a given version will work for x86 or x64 though of course we won't know for certain until RTM 7 ships, and people try it with real keys!

Are Windows Product Keys limited by language
Would this work - I buy an English copy of Win7 HP and then use the product key to activate a Chinese (TW) copy of Win7 HP? As I understand one product key works for both 32 and 64 bit editions and I am wondering if the same applies to the language.
