Apple to charge for Boot Camp?

Reports today indicate that Apple may be planning to take Boot Camp out of beta and transition it to a full, supported, paid-for offering. InformationWeek puts the final price at $29, similar to the price for QuickTime Pro, and not too much more than the $19 charge for Apple's MPEG-2 playback codec. If this pricing is correct (Apple has not confirmed it), it indicates that Apple sees Boot Camp as similar to these other items--something that some people will need but that most people can live without. I'd be surprised though if Boot Camp were not packaged into Leopard because it seems like such an integral part of what sells Intel Macs.
