Word on the street is that people seem to be asking for the 2900k bulbs over the 3200k balanced on their kinos. Just wondering if anyone had a reason they prefer it.

Most household lightbulbs are in the 2800K to 3000K range, so in theory, the 2900K Kino bulbs match better. Personally, though, I think they look a bit pinkish. I'd rather add gel to a 3200K Kino to warm them up.
