I've done a bit of research and I don't think they have such issues. 
Several folks are doing similar things very publicly (the website is 
aware of it) and it doesn't seem to be a problem.  Usually if 
something is disallowed you'll find it referenced very clearly in 
their user forums.

For instance, images and words that are disallowed on your products :-)

If somebody does something and it's considered bad by the company, 
it's usually well documented for others to find and read about.

So I think I'm okay along this path.  We're all in the business to 
make money and if we, the shopkeepers, find ways to improve our 
sales, then the company that supports us makes more money, too :-)

If they were smart they'd be offering us built in tools so we 
wouldn't have to roll our own.  But you know, there's nothing better 
than Rev for rolling your own!

Keep that doggie rolling...
