Yes, it absolutely is a problem.  It is difficult to figure out a way 
to do this that is fair.  We have some programs that are commercial by 
any definition, we have some programs that are amateur by any 
definition, and in the middle is a gigantic gray area.  And eventually 
a line will be drawn, and someone who is just slightly more 
"professional" than someone else will be labelled professional while 
the other guy is labelled amateur.
