Our company is writing a proprietary application to run on Windows CE v4.2.  The vendor that has supplied the platform did not include Pocket Internet Explorer.  However, that application includes an imaging.dll that our application would like to use.  Since the platform doesn't include it we were thinking about adding it ourselves when we install our application.  My question is whether this approach is feasible?  Is this the best approach and does it present any problems?  Can we as application provider simply take a component out of Pocket IE and add it to the CE platform?  Are there any legal issues to consider?

I'd say that the answer is "no".
Here is a doc from MS where they say that IE is not a part of the Core - that's on your device. - it is much cheaper for the OEM: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=9387A73D-D046-4F36-A862-613743E75197&displaylang=en
