It's true that no one has been able to fully unlock the cards since the 6800 (unlike ATI where the most recent cards have been fully modded), but it has been possible to gain partial functionality. Simply faking the device id to Quadro can enable extra features that are arbitrarily disabled in some software when using a normal card. There is also at least one person who has been able to get 7/8 series cards fully working as Quadro under OS X through bios mods (probably because nvidia hasn't integrated their protections into the apple drivers yet).
