Oh well, nothing any different from 99% of what's gone on in Amiga-land since 1993 or so.

Yes it was one of the MorphOS team Piru that pointed this out when the prototype was shown, so the developers discussed some possible workarounds before conceding it would need a completely new CPU instead.

My guess is this mistake was so costly that they would have been basically starting from scratch so decided it wasn't worth the effort.

Are maybe work continues behind the scenes, either way terrible communication.
