I like this idea as a mid term goal, say reachable within 5 years. Lets 
think about the major steps needed to go there?
Starting from here and now, say for  (a) "Project Oberon 2013" and or 
(b) "ETH Oberon" as initial system, and
having every year a new release moving the current system step by step 
into target solution, say first as
target  a ARM SoCs System with FPGA (for 2020) and after that moving the 
system forward to "HW/SW Codesign
solution" (for 2025). But every release should be a "Oberon Starter Kit".
