actually, although we can leverage the privacy aspect to attract
motivated developers, the main benefit to end-users is: dramatically
reduced costs due to no royalties and no massive NREs on hard macros
that need to be amortised across the cost of the chip.

the fact that the chip is privacy-respecting is a "side-benefit" for
the majority of people.  the reduced cost is what will hook them.
