I think this idea misses the whole purpose of the simulator: The
simulator is intended to write and debug high level code *for
specific targets*. Making it a separate target doesn't make
sense in respect to that.
Having a separate "hosted" target is an idea that makes perfect
sense, just not as a replacement for the simulator. There could
even be 2: One SDL target, and one console target for the
hardcore linux console fans. This way we could provide a nice
media player for linux, and it would also allow making rockbox
run on e.g. Windows Mobile devices.
