I'm willing to temporarily do better than secondary and worse than 
primary on the road to becoming primary.  This is a huge transition- 
identifying the right path to make that transition is part of what this 
is about.  The whole point of this thread is to establish requirements 
for promotion.  Part of that discussion logically includes the steps to 
get there.  Currently what I hear is "be as good as x86 and you're 
there."  That's not productive.  There are legitimate issues with moving 
to PA so we're having this discussion to identify them and ultimately 
work through them.
