I think it's a smart move on their part, especially since it gives users a substantial amount of lattitude on how they want to configure their router.  Better, it leaves open possibilities that other companies want to take on that a larger company might not--especially with niche market applications.

It's a good move for them.  Look at most any shopping or enthusiast site and one of the first questions asked about router deals is "does it support ddwrt/tomato/etc".  This makes the process more open and accessible, with the plus that if you use a third party firmware you don't void your warranty.
