Portability will be critical for P4's long-term success. While we all admit complete portability is an impractical goal, it'd be crucial to try to maximize the commonalities across different target architectures and hence achieve ease of porting.

Unfortunately target vendors (understandably) can't afford to share the full details of their target architecture. Yet, we need to be able to help potential P4 writers author practically-meaningful and viable P4 programs that can run on a various types of targets. To achieve these goals, we need the SM.
