I also have a concern about this issue and made the same assumption however yesterday I was told by one of the Cisco experts that as long as it is the owner of the end devices (i.e. An enterprise) that is doing the distribution that would be within the rules. However IANAPL and those that are will need to examine the small print. 

Maybe this is something that Cisco could clarify in the FAQ's.
