The thing is that while wine is a good solution for playing windows games on x86/x86_64 linux. It is not useful for other architectures.
As there are some rumours going around about Valve wanting to build some kind of linux based gaming device (console) they would profit from porting to linux instead of using wine. As wine does not work on other architectures, but when something is ported correctly it should be trivial to recompile for other architectures (arm anyone?).
