IMHO, if opensolaris can be supported guest OS in vmware
then vmware  has something to do with opensolaris.
some obvious advantage
1)U can create opensolaris  image very easily and distribute it one the 
web for user to try it out, U can also build appliance with some 
application into the image
2)It can be a playgroud to attract more developer, most developer use 
vmware, or like environmnet to install multiple OS to do test of the 
3)product demonstration will be easier,  follow SE can have demo 
environment to show case most if not all solaris/JES 
Untill (open)Solaris/xen  can support such environment,  today vmware is 
the leader, SE need to understand the technology to talk about virt anyway
