What is the best way to describe the current situation regarding
form-factory and architectures?

I'm not sure we need to state "what we will not do any more". When it
comes to hardware, it's better to state "what we will do":

What we will do:

* endeavour to support primary form-factors: workstation, laptop, server
and netbook.
* endeavour to support current hardware and mainstream architectures.

I understand this definition of "current hardware" is as fuzzy as "old
hardware", but I doubt if anyone will be able to come up with an exact

mainstream architectures are x86 and x86-64. How do we describe the current
status of support for Arm, PowerPC, Sparc etc?

"Still in development".
