Freestyle was the codename for MCE wasn't it? I suppose Server 2003 would have been at a similar time to the first MCE - XP SP2 is quite a bit newer, so already as the final MCE branding included.
Hmm, I'm sure I had the "Windows XP Freestyle" bit in Server 2003 with SP2. I can't check it right now because the machine is busy on Linux and I'd have to reboot to OS X first to access the VM...

I wouldn't be very happy if there was a lot of Japanese or something else that I didn't understand in Windows.
I think this only appears in some, for example: the Asian, versions of Windows. I have "used" Japanese, Korean and Traditional Chinese Windows editions and have noticed that in every one of these. I think it's just by design. In editions in non-Asian languages (French & German to be exact) I haven't noticed that yet. For example, the "Documents and Settings" folder is called like that in all Asian versions, due to system limitations. By design.
As for the PC98 machines having little RAM, I know some of them (or one that I've seen a screenshot of) can deal with (at least?) 64MB of RAM, allowing Windows 2000 to run. Here's the screenshot:
