What would be the point of running MS windows natively on a Mac ARM? The ability to run a windows (arm) version of MS Office? The only viable alternative is running an Arm version of Linux. And the only reason for that is Macos becomes so bad that you need to salvage your expensive hardware. That seems a stretch , even for Apple.

Dual booting different versions of the same operating system is not useless to people that develop drivers. non-hypervisor VMs are useless when you need access to actual hardware.

Since we're talking about Macs, I think that limits the relevance of this argument. Presumably, Apple has some special facilities for those developing drivers for Macs.
