No, the environment is quite controlled.
What need to be achieved is that IF someone steal the image
for one or several of the VM:s they will not be able to
emulate the functionality on any other hardware platform.

The VM:s are together making up a functional
setup where they are all needed. Isolation between them is
not critical.

No licensing :-)
