Re: Why didn't they require ARM64 from day one?

The Emulation is for x86 WIN32 Apps, not UWP apps which are mostly architecture independent.

x86 Win32 Apps are emulated on ARM64. This article simply states that you can now build Native ARM64 apps using Visual Studio - which I assume are 'WIN32' but could also be UWP. ARM64 has always been supported by Windows 10 on ARM from Day 1 - its just that Visual Studio is being released with support to build native ARM64 apps now.

That's what I read from this article.
