"an A7000 also running RISC OS 5 - which could mean we're close to a RiscPC-compatible build of RISC OS 5 being made freely available. The ROM image doesn't work with RPCEmu, though."

The reason it doesn't work is known, and it's RPCemu's CPU emulation at fault. (It can't actually emulate an A7500. What it does is more like a StrongARM with features turned off.)
