Ah the famous topic :)

I think the latest explanation for the AOT bits were that they are
still needed in ppc* architectures because openjdk is still slow on
those machines.

I don't know if this has changed since. But from F-13 on, I expect
that we will drop the AOT bit requirement since ppc* won't be primary
architectures anymore.
