Also fwiw, I have been assured from Gentoo developers that they will change their triplet to arm-linux-gnueabihf as soon as upstream adopts it.

I find the situation sad as well, since Linaro has been pushing for this triplet (at least the OCTO team and me personally for more than a year), and not having full support from within Linaro with regards to this matter is quite depressing. And I have to say, especially one of the arguments (Windows storage issue) should be irrelevant for a Linux problem.
