Though nothing is official, I still think this is the case with an
entirely free R3 and a paid-for SDK/encapper.
Still, R3 will probably be so flexible here that you can build your
own encapper, circumventing paid-for tools. So for RT to make money,
they would have to develop a new IOS and other tools.
