So it's mostly for the application layer, then.  I did get the sense it is
enough to start doing preliminary work on - that is compiling and testing
basic code.

I do expect, however that if the simulator runs the code, the hardware will
(with perhaps modifications due to errata), and I'll be able to get a jump
on application/tools development.

I'll let you know if I have luck with it.
