OK, someone please fix the recap then:

"PPC will remain a primary architecture until <some requirements are

I read it differently, but whoever has the logs and is empowered to
fix the summary should do so.

In this case take my request to finalize this topic. Unless a relevant
arch is tagged as secondary *before* there is a mechanism to deal with
secondary archs there will never be a secondary arch mechanism, and if
all archs save themselves into the primary arch boat that way, we'll
live forever in a catch22, e.g. we'll only have primary archs support
ot no support at all.
