Sure, why not? Safedisc is one of them (even as old as 1.5). It does not use
GetProcAddress (where it does matter). In fact, it does all the import fixups
itself (which still doesn't work on Wine ATM). So if you patch GetProcAddress it
might confuse it or some other programs that do read export tables directly.

Nope that won't work - see above, safedisc does export fixups itself. The
dll/executable in question has no imports at all. There are few other details
that I can't really talk about.

Who said Wine does that? Wine will brake into debugger aka crash when an app
tries to import non-existing function. The best example - old version of
mfc42.dll that doesn't have one of the functions lots of new apps need.
