Only possible case of armel binaries I'd want to run are the OpenMAX libraries 
from Freescale for iMX515 (or the other companies for OMAP3/4, etc), or 
Adobe's Flash client (I have the beta here). However, should such a port 
become successful -and why not, get adopted by Ubuntu for example, those 
companies will definitely follow suit and it would make sense for them, as 
they could get potentially more performance out of their software.
