"After all, STD could have gone to Castle rather than ROL anyway. Presumably ROL brought expertise that STD valued?"

Or else STD were (understandably) reluctant to license a vital component of their product from a direct competitor - which is, after all, why Acorn span off ARM. It's also possible that they approached both companies, and ROL said they could make RO4 fully 32bit for less money than Castle thought it would cost to make a RO5 HAL for the A9. Or something else in a similar vein....
