The answer is the same as any other "will X legacy device run Y Android version" question: if a developer creates one.

It will with a proper kernel (how hard it will be? who knows), if we had the drivers for this device we could say for sure yes

P.S. I'd like to try it, even if it's still beta and even if it's a binary-port

No it simply wouldn't. To many hardware limitations.
Do not compare yourself to others. If you do so, you are insulting yourself.

My devices:

HTC Desire HD, S-OFF with ViperDHD by Team Venom

Nexus 7 Stock rooted.

AFAIK, the hardware architecture of our phone has been known for long, so ... as long as the binary blobs and drivers aren't incompatible with the new stuff, then the only problem is to "get all pieces together" (adapt kernel, drivers & stuff) and build the rom.

So IMHO, as long as the new versions don't require more RAM or more internal storage than our phone possesses, or requires an internal architecture far different from the one from the DHD, then our "old" DHD should devinitely run whatever upcoming version may come !
