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?
