"The RISC-V architecture also provides for customization in the form of user defined instructions (UDIs), and MIPS said this would be useful in many high-end applications, while also keeping full compatibility with standard RISC-V development tools and software libraries."

And how long until we have a dozen processors, from different companies, all offering their own custom things (look, this one helps with mining!), all of which are totally incompatible with each other?
