This could help ARM licensees save time and money develing heterogeneous multicore SoCs that use multiple versions of ARM, grahics and other cores--if they use this tech. I fear many may go their own ways. Note the biggest licensees--Nvidia, Qualcomm, TI--are NOT here. Also it would have been a HUGE win if an AMD for example would have adopted this for its hetero X86/graphics chips. That's a lot to ask but would lead to faster time to market and smooth the path for software developers who have their work cut out for them learning the underpinings of many multicore SoCs.
