If the applications is are already proprietary I they can affort to
pay to get the whole way to 100% functionallity.
If they are open source they have an incentitive to work making Wine
I don't really see the problem.

So you mean that all the people that are current voluntering
to work of Wine won't work on Wine if it is almost complete
just because somebody else have done the parts they need
to run their applications and that they will happily pay for
the right to use it.
In that case it would be disasterous to make Wine run
all Microsoft implemented non-core Wine DLL:s because
then everybody would just be happy to use the Microsoft
DLL:s and nothing beyond non-core would ever be
You can't seriously believe this?
