The A10 fusion chip is cheap compared to the Intel chips. The iMac pro margin can easily handle it.
Apple could be working towards direct running of iOS apps on OS X for development or plain ol' operation. Your Mac could become your iPad or your phone... just another iOS device, while still being a Mac.
At the same time, Apple could be testing how well the ARM runs pro-style apps or OSX. If the A10 chip is handling the boot process, then the next step is booting to the OS of choice, be it OSX, Windows, or (dun dun dunnnn...) iOS.
Remember that Apple was running OSX on intel for FIVE YEARS before they ANNOUNCED the switch to Intel. We could have ARM-based Macs in that time or less from now.
It sounds nuts. N-V-T-S, nuts. But it is plausible.
