XF firewall with Sandstorm and Heartbeat for home users

Could Sophos consider to allow the use of sandstorm and heartbeat (with sophos free AV) for home users and increasing the ip limit to 100 (IoT is around the corner) for a price per year? 10$?

If there is other people interested it could be another stream of incomes from sophos and at then end the use that the home users will do of sandstorm will be extremely limited compared with a company with thousands of users.

        While the use of sandstorm would be limited with a home user as compared to the thousands an organization would have, I feel like opening it up to home users would help Sophos Labs a great deal, as home computers would typically have all kinds of bizzare applications and other things installed that a business would never have. So in the end, it could help to improve application accuracy and analysis of new/evolving threats.

        Maybe for sandstorm in the home user version (free) there could be a limit of 5 files per day smaller than 5 MB, taking into account that only suspicious files are uploaded to sandstorm this should be enough and avoid any abuse of the platform.

        Regarding the IP limit I just notice that XG firewall doesn't have it anymore so forget it.
