I realize that i686 support is being moved to a community mirror this year.
As far as I know, this will mean that pacman will give 404 errors until I
change the mirrorlist.

Is this correct? Will the old i686 packages still be kept? What else will
need to be done?

This is essentially correct. There are mirrors with preliminary packages
available for testing. See https://github.com/archlinux32/packages/tree/
master/core for more details.

ArchLinux will support x86 architecture until November 2017.
ArchLinux32 will inform us when their repository will be fully functional
including their packages.
As for time being, I don't know how stable their packages are.

They should be fully (mostly) ready for testing now; I wouldn't consider
them ready for a production system, but it's getting there.
