As I understood it, Miyamoto wasn't all that crazy about Donkey Kong Country when it was first being developed, but quickly changed his tune when he saw how successful it became. Thus, I think Miyamoto has let a LOT of people use his creations in other Nintendo games without his consent, as long as they stay true to his vision.

@KILLERAPP: If you don't care, then why did you comment telling us that you didn't care?
