I assume that there would be some work remaining to be done on the port, 
since it's not quite done yet. For example, the UI layer has not been 
ported, according to Microsoft, which means that the port is not really 
fully functional in its current state. [0]

If that's just a matter of days, then sure, I fully understand that you 
may not want to add a new aarch64-port repo just for that.

On the other hand, if there is a question mark over whether the port 
would become fully functional in the coming weeks or months, then trying 
to integrate the port-specific parts of it piecemeal into mainline 
before that the case ... would seem a bit premature to me.

In that case, an aarch64-port specific jdk/jdk staging repo might be 
more useful.
