Except when you're trying to optimize for power, which we're trying to do in the ARM world. :)

Consolidating work onto fewer cores[1] is something we're actively looking into.

Not just the ARM world, really; consider the turbo mode available with newer Intel and AMD processors. If you're doing work that runs better with fewer, faster threads rather than more slower ones, you'd want to aggregate the workload onto fewer cores and let the CPU ratchet the clock up.
