Why don't these sods quit the PPC route and start working on a Coldfire accelerator for normal, REAL Amigas?

Because the Coldfire is too slow.

Depends on your needs.
Because, to be honest, I don't see a single Amiga app that needs or makes full use of a G4, so why make a bloody G5?

Well there are tasks where a fast CPU is always helpful, like video encoding. It also helps when software is ported from other systems.
