It would be not exactly an intelligent business model to sell an
enterprise license for one server and let people manage their 100 OSS
Servers with this...

And, even when you solve tis somehow, if you sell a product with
support, and allow people to use it with their self-compiled stuff,
you lose control, and must either write in the contract that this
situation _can_ work, but is not supported, or you got to hell with
support hours that you give without additional fee, because people
build their stuff wrong, etc.
Or you charge hourly  for support, or you build into your fee structure the time to do the creative implementations the customer wants. I've done the latter, with some success, for Subversion and right now for Nagios and MRTG and Xen.
