I strongly advise making any new port EABI/ELF based. The COFF toolchain 
support is largely unmaintained, and is liable to cause serious grief when you 
want to support things like Thumb mode.

If you want a different format for executable images, then you can use a 
postlinker to create them from ELF images.  SymbianOS and uClinux already do 
this (though the uClinux implementation is a bit of a hack).
