I'm pretty sure they are still licensing it, but the concern Ceton may have is over long term availability of licenses. I have no idea what an embedded license costs, but it probably isn't viable for Ceton to purchase a huge number of licenses now anticipating they'll use them over the next N years. And uncertainty over whether WMC will be available for Win8 Embedded doesn't put them into a good position for a transition plan.
Though I see it as extremely unlikely, one of the best case scenarios would be for Ceton to find a way to purchase WMC from Microsoft and take over development of it as some others have already suggested.
In the meantime while they sort out their plans for the Q, perhaps they'll consider finally releasing the InfiniTV 6 so those of us who want them can purchase them.
