that I forgot to mention here?

Existence of real hardware.

Find a manufacturer who sells Linux-ready ARM systems that don't
need fiddling.

Well, I have some of these systems on my desk :-)

EFIKA MX is a small machine built around Freescale's iMX515:
I already had the ported part of openSUSE@ARM 11.2 running on it, and
