Default ISA does not matter

I suspect that if you include mobile devices in the "embedded" world,
Power and/or PowerPC don't even make the top 10 core-units.

Well, if mobile devices doesn't include cars! Certainly I associate PowrPC
with automotive. I don't think PowerPC has anything equivalent to low-end
ARM cores such as Cortex-M0, -M3 or ARM7.

By core count the world is mostly full of 8051 variants almost more numerous
than sand.
