I would personally want System Profiler to see it as a Mini. Is that an option?

I am sure we can use the ibook or Cube mac model number and Norton Disk Doctor Hex edit the Text as "Mini"

lol, that was the first thing i thought when i watched the youtube video.

i guess it should be not wrong to use that place to point out that it is running a modified OS9 system.

If you do ever manage to hex edit the text so it reports the Mac mini G4, remember the "mini" with a lowercase m, so "Mac mini G4", as branded by Apple where they call it "Mac mini".

I lack any preference, so I won't vote. Whatever gets OS 9 closer and closer to working perfectly is all I'm personally concerned about. :)
