Putting a Mill and an x86 compatible core on the same chip doesn’t make much sense to me. Putting the processors in separate chips together on a motherboard might make sense, though code translation removes much of the need for that.

One issue putting 2 CPU chips on a board, even of the same kind, would have to deal with is coordination of physical memory allocation. My impression is that the mill hardware automates a great deal of physical memory allocation, though provisions would have to be made for telling the hardware what address space is available for the purpose, and addressing specific hardware addresses.
