Look at the picture on Prolite Gear, the Rab Andes eVent bivy, 1.22 lbs. The text says “arms free arrangement,” but I’m not sure what that means. Is this so you can sit up in the snow and sleet and run a JetBoil?

Yup. Talked about briefly in Prolite's video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rt9bQBJdGeI

Perhaps the arm holes of the bivy line up with the arm holes in Feathered Friends Wren sleeping bags:
“The zippered arm holes of the Wren series allow you to essentially wear your bag like an uber-warm parka when you're perched 10 pitches up, while the two-way center zip provides a convenient opening to remain tied in while you sleep. With the Wrens’ drawcord bottom, the bag can be opened up and easily slipped above the waist while you venture out to heed natures call.”
