At minimum needs a better name if this is going to be a global feature.

A single "cpu-arch" is not sufficient here. If you look at the BBv1
equivalent there are three features: address-model, architecture, and
instruction-set, to handle the possibilities for controlling code
generation. And there's are way more possibilities than i386, amd64 and
ia64 ;-) ...I've gone ahead and transplanted, and added, the features
present in BBv1 for this into BBv2.

Yes. It's 13 now :-) Some of those items will take some consideration as
they require some thinking about how to generalize the ideas to other
