They will probably try to do it the Microsoft way of embrace and extend. Embrace ARM (by making the fastest ARMs on the market) and extend them with their own technology, to make clients dependent on Intel. Then offer a host of migration tools for moving to their x86 platform, wich will have Intel's ARM-extensions by then, and phase out the ARM line by ending its development. Lets hope that everyone sticks to the ARM instruction set and does not use the Intel extensions.
