As I tried to tell you several times before, I consider this step

a) to be silly, because it raises abiguities to the "arm-rtems*" target 
tuple and breaks the clear distingtion between "arm-rtems" and 
"arm-rtemseabi*" we currently have.

b) contradicts upstream GCC conventions to name all arm-*eabi targets

Formal objection - I feel you are shooting yourselfs into your own foot 
and consider this proposal to be harmful.
