Funny, my take on this was that apple learned a lesson from last time, and made sure the biggest players like Ms and Adobe were on board so that quite a lot of customers will never really need to rely on Rosetta 2 (and avoid another awkward Quark Xpress situation*) ...
Which is a smart move, make emulation possible but offer convenient pathways to help avoid needing to actually use it in the first place. Now given Apples depreciation cycle Rosetta2 will probably not b with us for a very long time anyways. ;0




*) I seem to remember that Adobe used the past transitions to leapfrog past competitors that were not willing to go native soon.
