I like this discussion. Perhaps we could talk to the folks at http://www.oshwbank.org/ about helping sponsor the project (more details: http://antipastohw.blogspot.com/2009/03/introducing-open-source-hardware.html)
Another idea would be to do a Kickstarter campaign to raise some initial funds. 
A platform like this for a hobby-accessible price would be fabulous for education.

Non-commercial use, academic only and other clauses restricting use of the hardware/software in derived works is not compatible with the OSI definition of an open source license. See:


Specifically, clause 6 states:

6. No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor

The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the program in a specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not restrict the program from being used in a business, or from being used for genetic research.
