I don't know about opensource, but there are versions of msdos 6.22  
source floating around on the net.  It appears to be a complete source  
version, including things like qbasic as well as all the kernel code  
and such.
Perhaps it's escape wasn't entirely accidental?
In any case, I know that means it can't be used in this case, but the  
fact that it's out there would seem to indicate that ms might be  
willing to at least entertain the idea assuming appropriate  
individuals could be reached.
I personally gave up trying to get ms to do anything at all years ago,  
but as you say, if folks continue to ask, it's possible they'll  
respond.  Borland hasn't open sourced their pascal compiler, but they  
have released it for free on their musuem page, perhaps someone could  
contact them and ask if it would be possible to include copies of tp55  
with freedoss, it's likely they'd give permission, since they seem to  
be pretty flexible over there.
