The Mozilla Foundation has made Google Firefox's default search engine, earning a large but undisclosed sum to financially support it. Though 'embedding' comes close, I'm not sure if this well-known OSS revenue earning coup is specifically covered by any of your models above.

I'm not so sure about that "commodity" idea. I think you're on to an idea, there, but its name is not "commodity." I've tried getting people to switch wiki engines, and I know better than even to TRY getting them to switch editors, and the reaction I get tells me these are not commodities (interchangeable).

I'm not sure what name the idea _does_ deserve, though. Maybe just "near-commodity" is good enough.
