The only way for that to be avoided is for natively running RO machines to be able to clearly out-perform an emulated one. Having a RiscPC outrun by an emulator doesn't bother me; it's a pretty old machine by now, but if the emulator starts doing better than the Iyonix the RISC OS hardware market has serious troubles, since it'll be very hard for anyone to justify not going down the emulation path (ignoring any "pay to support the hardware" or "I won't buy anything that runs Windows" arguments).

Hopefully it'll keep the top end of the native RISC OS market on its toes, although certain key points of that are out of their control (e.g. available processors).
