You're confused regarding "worthwhile". It's much harder to develop
on an ARM board or emulator than on x86_64, which happens to be
Zoltan's main development platform. That's the only reason why full
AOT is also available for x86_64. If his main platform were x86,
then we'd have full AOT for x86 alongside ARM.
