How about the licensing? I think the VSA BIOS freely available from NatSemi if one gets the XPressROM kit from them, but what does the GPL say about calling a binary object? In my mind there is no linking done if a GPL:ed application contains a binary blob which it uncompresses into memory and then jumps to an address within the blob, but people were quite anal retentive about GPL:ed applications using the Qt toolkit a few years ago, so there could be trouble.
Still, it's not a legal problem to use Grub oder Lilo for loading and jumping into this binary blob called windows. If putting VSA2 code to ROM would be a problem for whatever reason, it could be loaded from a different media, as vsa is not needed to get IDE working.
