The problem with that is getting someone to do the work. The whole
reason that the i686 kernel was retired was due to people not stepping
up to do the maintenance of the kernel, and the kernel alone.
I’m assuming (perhaps wrongly) that the people proposing the change
would be ready to maintain the new hardware arch, and shake out the bugs
associated with the new compiler flags. Because the bulk of us seem
stuck with older hardware for now.
