Even if it could, it would still mean no new drivers could be developed from it, only what already exists legally.
The new FPGA boards that are out and coming out would not be permitted to use P96 without being held hostage, neither would any new graphics board.
It would mean the end of P96 anyway as the relevant folk are already looking into CyberGFX as a alternative in case this happens.
