Not to make this a debate, but...
What I don't like about the system below (and why I think it hasn't
happened already to any great extent) is:
* Investors will have to put a lot more money up for the developer to
give up ownership of the product to the investors
* Multiple investors "owning" a product and dividing profits is a pain
(and not so lucrative)
Rather, I think it's good to drive down the initial cost (so people
will actually buy in), and allow *someone* to have some real profit
potential, as I don't think a 3rd party Rev product split too many ways
excites anyone just yet.
Just my 2 cents!
