I am wondering whether this may be confusing for those not 
intricately familiar with the older history of ARM platforms.

ARMv8 is pretty new, googling for it has 
  http://www.arm.com/products/processors/armv8-architecture.php
as first hit, for example, and the only difference versus ARM8 
is that little lower-case "v".
