Angry [Q] Android L

I understand that the question I am about to make is rather stupid, but here goes anyways.
Is there any chance that we will see the new, yet to be released, Android L on our devices(i.e. Miro, Tipo, E and J)?
I wish to know what do developers think of this and if you know how what are the basic requirements for Android L, since the developer`s preview version is already out?

Scroll down to the bottom and find the android version overview. The Xperia E (Dual) didn't have this section, some don't. But I am assuming that the Tipo Dual, the E and the E Dual will not be upgraded past their current versions. You'll be lucky if you see developers build it for these devices.
My Devices:
My Phone: Sony Xperia M C1905 | ROM: Modified Stock | Base Firmware/Build Number: 15.4.A.0.23 | Android Version: 4.3 | Kernel: Stock (Permanently Locked Bootloader) | Network: GiffGaff
My Tablet: Google Nexus 7 (2012) | ROM: CM11 | Base Firmware/Build Number: 11-20140527-NIGHTLY-grouper | Android Version: 4.4.4 | Kernel: CM11 | Network: N/A

I completely understand that there will be no official upgrade for all these devices. Its just that I am asking if the guys around these forums will be able to port the new Android L (probably will be Lollipop) on these devices.
Thanks for the reply!

The guys here are doing CM11.Try it if you want but it is stil in alpha stage.I dont think that we will see Android L for our devices but if we can run 4.4.3 with no problem (lag free and working camera ) that is going to be great.
DEVICE:Sony Xperia E (NANHU) / Rooted / Bootloader = unlock
COLOUR: Black
BATTERY: Extended 1500mAh
ROM: Stock (11.3.A.2.23) deoxed
KERNEL: Zues JB (320 - 1 806Mhz)

Oh, we can if the devs build it... or if we becomes the devs and build it! :P (I personally prefer the second option, cause XDA, I think, is a developer site and we'd be crappy members if we're on a developer forum and can't make anything :P)

No disrespect intended.
Insert really cool signature here...

It would be cool to see L on our devices.
Also remember that it's still a dev preview, we probably have to wait for google to release this along with a new nexus.
I'm sure someone will be curious enough to try porting it, but I'm also sure it won't be soon, probably not even in this year.
IMO I'd prefer devs finish one project, then move to another one.

To be honest, I think any android version could be ported to any devices with 600 MHz processor and 3d accelerated GPU. That has been the case since ICS. Android has never been really demanding. For example, HTC pico has cm9, cm10, cm11 and its processor is 600mhz with adreno 200. The only devices which I think are unable to port to are those with 400 - 500 MHz processor with no gpu, opengl is 1.1 (e.g HTC hero, HTC magic,....)

Default Guys,

Guys,
Don't take me hope losing for you
This coulde be impossible
J=SingleCore 1.0Ghz Cortex A5+Adreno 200=Sluggish perofrmance on all roms (including stock)
Tipo,Miro,Nahnu are worst than jlo
So,I think that CM11 is enough (As its still in alpha stage)
Please, Guys Don't take that offensively
Good Luck

My Devices:
*Sony Xperia J (ST26i) Unlocked Bootloader & with Doomsday ROM with vengeance kernel OVERCLOCK TO 1.3GHz
