I guess that if you decide to put maemo/meego UI to run in this chipset they would have no problem to distribute it. For what I heard, they started with Debian but open to external colaboration to create diferent distros firmwares.
The killer question may be:

is this something we can boot from USB

or

do we need a cleanroom environment
with all the
kludgeware ADB thisworks thatdoesn't insanity
that goes with squeezing a distro through an
Android enema of some sort.
Because that pig ain't got no wings.

If we can boot it through USB then this might be golden:
I have seen somewhere MTK had a kernel refence,
aand as shoddy as MTK is that may cure some issues,
assuming this is not running on top of an Android layer.

(BTW I bought a Nokia 6 and Android it runs is beyond hopeless)
