Absolutely agreed about ease of use of v3 CAR.
My hope was to simplify porting to v3 by switching v2 targets to CAR.
But v2 CAR is horribly complicated, so your point about concentrating
efforts on v3 is very valid.
Now if some targets can be converted easily to v2 CAR (less than 30
minutes per board), my idea still might make sense, if only to
differentiate between hard/impossible and easy CAR conversions from the
hardware POV.

And to be honest, I want to test how well Urbez' gcc+xmmstack solution
works out for the hard targets.
