"Well as ROL kept claiming over and over this was paid for by Ad6 - gee, what did ROL then do with all the subscribers money?"

IIRC they (ROL) said that porting their RISC OS to the A9 was paid for by Ad6. I would assume that this was the hardware abstraction work, not the 32bitting work. So presumably Select subsribers paid for the 32bitting and Ad6 funded the development of video drivers for VIDC, wich include software implementations of A9 specific hardware acceleration features.
