Reporting Services Licences bites again

A while back I posted on the problems I encountered with the SQL Server licencing model that requires Reporting Services to be run on the same box as the database or that a second licence be purchased.
I have just had the same conversation with another client. This is getting embarassing and Microsoft REALLY need to address this.
Reporting Services is trying to break into a populated market. I know that the licence is much cheaper and easier that the likes of Crystal but they have an installed and trained userbase. getting people to make the switch is hard enough without extra licencing hurdles to jump over.
