You can, actually, buy legally-binding QOS guarentees from some companies (like IBM) for some software. The market has decided that such agreements are very, very expensive though, and the company will end up wanting pretty much total control over your operating environment.
I wonder if there are any insurance companies who offer software failure insurance. It seems like they'd be better structured to deal with the liability.
