Italian PowerPC Manufacturer ACube is Working on (Possible) Unauthorized AmigaOS 4.0

The Italian PowerPC manufacturer ACube Systems, currently working on the AMCC 440EP-based Sam440EP is working on AmigaOS 4.0. The news has leaked on an Italian Amiga forum and it is said the news should not be spread. This could mean they are either not ready to announce it or they don't have any license from Amiga Inc, yet. There have been no announcements from either party that ACube Systems managed to work out a license-deal with Amiga Inc. In fact, no other company than Eyetech has any license to produce Next-Gen Amiga hardware.

Does this mean they are porting AmigaOS 4.0 to their platform, illegally? Is Hyperion helping them? Not too many details are known other than this:
"Just from a theorical point of view, running OS4 on the Efika is IMPOSSIBLE without recompiling the source code.
I know how much it took to run ExecSG on Moana, and I had the sources and help from the two clones."

This is in reference to Bill and Raquel's post on concerning their intentions to run AmigaOS 4.0 on EFIKA.
