If I had to choose between an ISA change and better support for the currently supported PPC hardware, I'd prefer the latter. Look at what goes on with OS4, they are constantly preoccupied with supporting new hardware, leaving existing users with almost no support.
OS4 has support for the Articia-S based AmigaOnes (MorphOS has also support for Articia-S Pegasos 1).
OS4 has support for the Pegasos 2, so does MorphOS.
OS4 has support for Sam 460, so does MorphOS.
OS4 has Sam440, MorphOS has Efika.
OS4 will have X5000 support, MorphOS has this as well.
OS4 has support for X1000. MorphOS does not support this, but it supports some ~80 other systems that OS4 doesn't.
During the last decade, the supported HW list for MorphOS has exploded! For OS4, not so at all.
Despite the rapid growth in supported platforms, I only see good support from the MorphOS team; they are very responsive, bugs are fixed very quickly, performance increased, features added and improved.
MorphOS is Amiga done right!
MorphOS NG will be AROS done right!
