Although when Wolfram Research is involved nothing is impossible, still 
I think the scenario you suggest is not all that likely:  Already many 
buyers of new PCs complain that their machines come with too much 
pre-loaded.  And how large a percentage of users in the business world 
(surely a rather large segment of the PC market) would want to make use 
of Mathematica Player?
