The Amiga only uses autovector interrupts, so i doubt the cpu on the vampire knows how to handle mfp68901 ones.
Unlike Amiga, the ST chips can generate bus errors (especially in user mode) and these need to be handled - the vampire cpu probably doesn't catch them.

I'm not saying it can't work at all, just that it won't be as easy as it first looks.
I Think that right now it should be seen as nothing more than a proof of concept.
I'm sure Atari support is way down on the todo-list, but given time, its not far fetched to imagine they'd do a separate "branch" of the ApolloCore to work with ST.
