Xilinx seem to be trying to head this way with their FPGA software,
and if they try to force it I think it will come back to bite them
badly. It may be appropriate in cases where a remote service can
provide more power for highly compute-intensive applications, like
fitting very large FPGAs, but otherwise all the above problems will
seriously discourage users.
