You are suggesting that your average user is responsible for breaking some agreement with (just one example) the listing service that MCE uses.  What's the difference between getting listings in MCE or some other commercial PVR application and using a separate application to download listings into MythTV? You average user would have no idea what's going on, in fact how the schedule 'downloader' works would be beyond most people.
