I believe I have the hardware for at least a few of those, and I
definitely have some post-80386 boards with ISA slots.

Whether this is an argument for or against, of course, you will have to
decide for yourself. :)  ...yourselves, I guess, since this is going to
the list.

I don't recall which ones I have hardware for.  The ones that seem
likely to me are aha, ahc, aic, and bha, but I'd have to go through my
hardware to see, something I'm in the wrong city to do now.
