All the old BeOS applications won't run on ARM, so IMHO ARM isn't such a good idea for Haiku.
Users wants applications too, a responsive OS is nice but by itself not good enough..

Are there many such old Beos apps (I honestly don't know) ?
is the goal of Beos the same as dos emulators, allowing people to run their old apps that have no replacement ?

They only need a decent cpu emulator or jit translator, like Apple did when they changed architectures. Old applications expected to be run in slower computers, so they will probably perform OK anyway.
