[Wine] Benefits from using original Windows DLLs?

I still own MS Windows NT 4 Workstation and Windows95 both on CD. 
According to the FAQ Windows can't be installed using Wine, but the 
DLLs could be extracted and used with Wine.

Is there much benefit from doing this? I guess the DLLs could be copied 
to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system right?

If it makes sense, what is best to used, Win95 or Win NT4? Is this 
procedure legally allowed (I do not have Windows installed anywhere on 
the harddrive, just own the original CDs)?
