Since FreeDOS 1.0, support for 8086 actually improved. A few 
executables were unnecessarily incompatible with 8086 and have been 
fixed through trivial changes to compilation/compression settings.

Also I'm quite sure that there were real bugfixes for at least one 8086 
compatible program. And of course there will be future bugfixes for 
programs that are currently 8086 compatible.
