Are these criticisms still applicable to PAE?

As I read them, it seems that losing 128 MB to access 800 MB is still a 672 MB 

I do not need to run any 64 bit apps, unless running a 64 bit OS in a VM is 
considered a 64 bit "app".

If PAE is good in the balance, it seems a much simpler approach to my problem.
