The problem with forcing PMT on everything is that a lot of apps expect their environment to be static between WIMP_Polls (interrupts excepted). Proper PMT systems allow you to control this - PMT RISCOS would need new calls added for software that needed to control this.

I wouldn't necessarily say that 'very little current software' will work - Wimp2 worked with a significant number of apps (though sadly not enough to actually warrant an improvment in performance).
