You're not the only one. One of the Japanese vendors I believe did
that, since the R6502 is available as a core for gate arrays and then
promptly created the whole business and added more instructions to the
 mix.  It came up in a Hack A Day article not all that long ago, and
got me surprised. The rumor that they were banned from certain US
Government offices because of their ability to repeat what they've
heard is sadly still around, even though the Feds have insisted it was
not the case.
