I don't see the problem. Companies using BSD in their embedded systems
also create some sort of distribution. In my opinion it is not bad as
long as the "market" doesn't fragment too much like Linux. And that
won't happen if componies/individuals who make custom versions of NetBSD
keep track of "the real" NetBSD.
