A lot of them are 32-bit/64-bit and little-/big-endian variants of an

The unique ones I see are:

ARM, Alpha, Cris, i386, lm32, m68k, Microblaze, MIPS, Moxie, OR32, PPC,
SH4, SPARC, Tricore, Unicore32, and xtensa.

Whew!  That's 16 architectures.

Some of the 32- vs 64-bit variants have big differences in instruction
sets and features.  However, people searching for information may not
know when to search for the specific variant versus when to look for the
common architecture.

I think it is simpler to house variants on a single wiki page (i.e.  ARM
for both aarch64 and arm).  Then we can use Mediawiki redirects to also
catch the specific variant names.

But ultimately it's up to the wiki page authors to decide.
