Ah the famous topic :)
I think the latest explanation for the AOT bits were that they are
still needed in ppc* architectures because openjdk is still slow on
I don't know if this has changed since. But from F-13 on, I expect
that we will drop the AOT bit requirement since ppc* won't be primary

AOT is still beneficial with some applications, even on non-ppc
architectures -- ecj being the prime example.
