That seems wrong to me.  I don't think in this cases you have
"a platform" -- you have two platforms that happen to be able to run
some of the same code, but which do not share an ABI.

To put it this way, NetBSD on mips can run Ultrix binaries.  Should
we simply declare Ultrix ECOFF the lowest common denominator and run
everything else in emulation rather than native?
