Yes, they could be evidence in another lawsuit, not between Microsoft 
and TomTom.  If Microsoft sues someone else over the same, or even 
similar, patents, that someone else would have a reasonable chance of 
getting at the Microsoft/TomTom settlement terms (at least 
partially--the settlement amount, for example) via a discovery request,
and would be able to introduce that information into trial as part of 
their rebuttal to the damages part of Microsoft's case.
