I am of the opinion that RT,RSX M & D etc could be dealt with in exactly 
the same way as the very successful OpenVMS Hobbyists program.
Its free  but you need to be  a member of a recognized group. In  my 
case HPUG. I'm also classed as a HP pensioner due to my DEC service.

One thing that has always interested me was could you build the next 
generation of PDP-11.'s
I have an example of an 11/94 which was pretty much the end of the line.
     So no DEC CPU parts allowed.
     DEC form factor boards and connectors,
     No Mentec boards
     Physical Q-Bus
     No Emulations - Runs say RT native.

I would very much hate to see such stuff lost forever, and strongly feel that it should be preserved now to ensure that it will still exist at some future time when it either passes into public domain or becomes legally owned by somebody interested in preserving it.
