I'm guessing that price and power consumption are more important for these guys than open source.

Sure, power efficiency is becoming a greater concern for this segment, but the other item not covered here which is increasing becoming a major "why ARM in networking" reason is open source software. Proprietary RTOSs have their place. Many OEMs are "black boxing" code around those. But OEMs increasingly looking to harness open source software due to the pressure for shorter development cycles and smaller project budgets.
