There is virtually no affordable hardware out there

There is virtually no affordable PPC hardware. It kinda moved to the high-end sector with IBM workstations and servers.

Of course you could take the specifications made for PPC and just apply them to ARM. After all there were full specifications for PPC-PCs. They even included bizarre things like the boot sector having to contain some x86 code to display an error message when you run it.
