Don't read too much into where the info appeared. It's the ARM processor blog, and gets a post about once a month or so as a public facing pop-technical update as to whatever the next new thing is that ARM has done.

The issue of use cases is more interesting. My assumption is that this wasn't just thrown out there to see what will happen; someone has asked for something like this.
The two obvious candidates are Microsoft (via a QC chip?) and the Chinese manufacturers.

In a sane world Amazon would pair up with either MS or Google to flood the world with these, AMZ handling the hardware side, Google or MS the SW side. Let's see if the various parties involved can approach sanity...
