If this is done, will all binaries be APCS26 by default (restricted to a
26-bit address space)?  If so, will binaries specifically compiled for
APCS32 require their own set of shlibs?

If the answer to both is "yes", it should retain the "arm26" designation,
or at worst, go to "armv2" to use the same name as the GNU toolchain.
Just calling it "arm", if the binaries are APCS26-only (not APCS32), is
going to confuse a whole lot of people.
