If these architectures aren't supported anymore, is it time to drop some of these from this page?
Your theory is quite mistaken. A lot of the ones you labeled "drop" are supported. Quite possibly all of them.
Ok, I see that. Spot checking some of the architectures, they are still
getting periodic checkins.
In my defense, I can't find any official list of which are 'tertiary'
and which are deprecated (https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2016-03/msg00010.html).
That said, there are still a lot of entries on that machine constraint page.
How about if I re-organize the list similar to function attributes
(https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Function-Attributes.html)? Or at a
minimum, add @anchors for each architecture so there are links?
