I have been listening to this list for awhile but haven't contributed, so I
humbly submit my thoughts on this.
I think that if this is option is made available to any vendor then it would
then be available to any vendor that choose to participate.
If I understand what is being requested by the vendor than would it suffice
in the heading of the compiler status table to indicate something like, "XXX
Compiler, courtesy of X company. <link> <logo>"? Then I think it would a
smashing good idea.
I would think the best choice in this case is to keep it simple.
I think it would be helpful in the compiler table if there was an indication
if a workaround was required or not.
