> The whole "the x86 needs to swap byte order when emulating 68k" thing is pretty much a non-issue
Do you mean in terms of speed? I don't care. But is it possible on a logical level to mix endianess (e.g. to have something like amithlon in AROS and allow executables in amithlon to call AROS OS functions)? How could you ever know how to reverse the byte order? With 16 bit data, you reverse the order of two bytes, with 32 bit data, you reverse the order of four bytes. That means that 16bit is not a subset of 32bit: two reversed 16 bit words produce a different result than one eversed 32 bit longword. In other words, you must know the data size to choose the strategy for reversal. But you don't know the size, do you? You can't assume that the access size is identical with the data size.
