The onel thing that no one's realised yet is the possible change this makes for emulators. If it's possible to legally distribute a version of RISC OS - say, a cut down RISC OS 5 version (or perhaps the Pace RISC OS 4 version) for RiscPC-like emulated hardware, that could be a big boost to getting people to try RISC OS. Using it wtih GPL emulators like RPCEmu would be no problem, since it's just data it uses. (although RPCEmu would be classified as "contrib" by Linux distributions like Debian)
