Intel's foundry aspirations provide obvious motivations for feature backporting (processes are longer lived with a foundry and more diverse targets can make different feature mixes worthwhile) and it seems plausible that the increase in diversity in Intel's internal products (and seeming aspirations in this direction) may also justify some backporting particularly with the increase in multi-die integration.

Side note: I am a little curious how Intel managed older process use as integration made chipsets smaller.
