Wine and Windows RT: What’s the point?

As I was looking at today’s open source news, I ran across an announcement about Linux 3.11’s features. At the bottom of the list there was a blurb about Wine being able to run Windows RT apps.

Huh?

Is it me or is this just a huge waste of developer time? Windows RT devices aren’t selling well at all, it seems to be yet another gigantic bomb from Microsoft. So why waste the time and effort to support it in the first place?
