Just to trough my 2 cent into the ring:

With all the noise around
* the Playstation 3 and FC5/YellowDOG for the PS3
* Ubuntu considering dropping PPC support
* the quite new Cell arch that is only supported by FC currently
I'd say: Let PPC be a primary arch for F7 as that might give us some
nice bonus points in the community and some good press in the next few
months. Test and develop the secondary arch infrastructure with IA64 and
Sparc for F7. Discuss making PPC a secondary arch after F7 again if it
works fine for IA64/Sparc.
