I think for the moment all typo fixed version of the old ABI document would
already be great - and producable at minimal effort.
In the longer run I'd be happy to see the 32-bit and 64-bit ABI documents
unified as it was already happening on www.mipsabi.org when the site and
the MIPS ABI group was shutdown; I think I did save the few bits I was
able to save.
Btw - www.mipsabi.org is on air again. But this time it's a porn site. I
may be tolerant but imho that's really a trademark case for the lawyers.
