Oh, come on, for the time, it was OK.

DOS compatibility looked like it'd be a selling point, although it
didn't actually prove to be a big one AIUI.

The A2000 came out in '87, the same year as the 68030, so including
that wasn't really viable. They probably should have used a 68020
(released 1984) but the performance and functionality gains over the
68000 were not that significant, I believe. And I think exploiting
some of them would have broken binary compatibility in AmigaOS.
