If I were an OSR publisher...

Then I would be looking at my upcoming catalog and seeing what I have that is remotely AD&D like and get it out in time for the reprints.

Think of the ads you could use.  You never have to claim compatibility except where the OGL is concerned.
"Love the new reprints of the Classic game?  Well you will also love..."

I have had the chance to talk to some younger generation gamers and many (but not all) are of the mind to get these, just to see what they are all about.

This could be one of the biggest PR opportunities to come in a very long time.

That's what I've been thinking, too. WotC will sell plenty of copies of the reprints to people NEW to the edition. And where are they going to turn for support products once they get the three core books?

To the OSR.

I just don't get the doom and gloom from some corners of the blogosphere about this. I'm pretty sure it's going to make the OSR stronger, not weaker.
