Sorry to be blunt, but isn't that a bit of a silly question? If the personal edition is for personal use, and RunRev's position is "why build a standalone for your own computer?" then why offer it as a feature of the personal edition at all?

I haven't looked at the personal edition, so maybe it's also used for academic licenses or for distributing stacks among an academic institution (in which case I understand the feature). But, I imagine that there's other ways that could be done as well without the use of a banner. 

For example, perhaps when the standalone is built there was an option to bind the executable to a specific domain name or subdomain where any machine in that range can run the application with no banner popup?
