It is simply what you get when you keep hacking on an instruction set to add new features.

The customers have decided that they don't want to throw away all the software they already paid for. That's why backwards compatibility won, because it addressed the needs of the paying customers.


But none of that backward-compatibility for a puny chip would have been necessary if IBM hadn't compromised their brand by choosing the Intel 8088 for reasons of expediency. IBM originally wanted the more natural choice of Motorola 68000 since its architecture/assembly was somewhat similar to their mainframe s360 architecture. (The Motorola even has some built-in BCD instructions.) But Motorola manufacturing was not quite ready for the volume IBM needed, so they went with the drastically not-forward-looking but highly available 8088/16 chips, saddling the development community with a scrawny architecture basically forever.
