There are two open questions for me here.

(1) The list says nothing about using (appropiate) LLVM infrastructure
like the MC subsystem. Should it be a requirements for (new) targets to
support the full source-to-object chain?

(2) What are the criterions for reviving targets? Consider the Alpha or
Itanium target.
