Since ndiswrapper is GPL, it should receive the same treatment as other GPL modules.
Why ? Kernel developers are not obliged to help you run proprietary stuff - be it NDIS driver or NVidia driver.
On the other hand it's probably childish to punish ndiswrapper so: you can not distribute the end result (ndiswrapper plus NDIS windows's driver) anyway and you can easily patch the kernel to make it work so (and it's legal! as long as you keep all chnages private) thus all this thing accomplis is a lot hassle for the people who are already punished...
