Well MS (with Intel and HP) declared it royalty free albeit via a
development manager. If they were to do a u-turn they would not only be
in hot water with US and EU competition commissions but they would also
lose all trust or faith in themselves - it would be a massive PR failure
and I think its inconceivable that would happen.

The legal situation should be cleared up long before we get to Gnome 3
