Xorya on RISC-V?

A project log for XORYA - extremely low cost game console on PIC32

XORYA game console is just one chip PIC32MX170F256B (32-bit MIPS core, 256K flash, 64K data mem) in DIP28 package and a few other components

Recently I made a lot of activities around RISC-V open architecture and even created my own RV32I implementation that passed majority of compliance tests (except 1 about unaligned jumps) - see nedoPC-5 project . So then I've got an idea - what if I put Xorya framebuffer (with control logic) to the same FPGA with RISC-V core? Then I'll be able to load Xorya programs from external storage (as SD-card for example), add serial, ethernet etc.  Porting XORLib to this new system should be relatively easy task because it's written in C (only some Microchip specific things as SPI+DMA handling should be re-written). What do you think? Please leave a comment below...
