Default Compatibility layer for ART

With Android L already out and 5 sure to come out soon Dalvik is dead, which is a problem because all the ACLs I seen use Dalvik.

Is there one for ART? so far I found none, is it because its too complex? or its just too early?

Dalvik has to live for the many, many, many legacy devices out there. They can't just make it disappear.

I'm sure Myriad Group is tackling the ART compatibility. They would have to be...
Nokia Lumia 925 (T-Mobile Variant): Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers
LG Nexus 4 (16GB): Sailfish OS EA3
Asus Nexus 7 (2012 WiFi 32GB): Factory Google KitKat 4.4.4 + francoKernel & Xposed

TBH I'd prefer available to end-users Dalvik to unavailable to end-users ART.

Yep, not crazy about ART being "obligatory" now either, benchmarks so far don't show the promised bump in speed google has been talking about, and apps take more space due to the pre-compilation.

Afaik ART code and repos are available, what would be/is the impediment to create a CL?
