That's all very well - I was a big fan of PPC myself. But realistically, what's available as an alternative? Since Apple ditched PPC, there aren't any other commodity platforms available anymore.

If Amiga OS still has any chance at a comeback, it needs to be able to run on hardware that's easily available, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Apple might be able to get away with changing their hardware on a dime, but that's because they have significant app vendor support and a large install base. Which are luxuries Amiga doesn't enjoy.
