Morphos MorphOS 2.7 has been released, and it's mostly a bug-fix release. The one thing that stood out to me is that some work has gone into fixing bugs for several PowerPC G4 chips - more specifically, models used in PowerBook G4s. MorphOS has been demonstrated on the PowerBook G4, but official support for it has not been released yet.

With the developer resources available it makes sense to support commonly available PowerPC hardware. Those outdated Macs aren't that scarce, certainly not compared to the Genesi Open Desktop Workstation which is no longer available and produced in comparatively miniscule numbers. You fail to mention any specific architecture and present an argument why resources would be better spent such an effort.

I'm not even going to elaborate on other architectures or reasons why. It's self evident.

Yes, it is quite clear you are unaware of the Amiga legacy compatibility aspects of MorphOS. (Not an ideal situation, but all things considered the best option for now.)
