OS/DB migration, heterogeneous DB-copy, alternative approaches (cheaper)

I have a customer who is planning an "OS/DB migration" (also known as
"heterogeneous database copy") of his SAP R/3 systems from AS/400 to NT.

As far as I know, the only reliable _and_ recognized[1] process is,
to have this done by a consultant who is certified for this sort of
operations,
using the tool obtained from SAP AG,
with the license,
and paying not just the consultant, but also a EUR 8000 license fee to
SAP AG.
[1]By "recognized" I mean, recognized by SAP, so that they cannot claim
that the "new" SAPsystem is unsupported.

The customer says that some other service providers have offered a
different approach -
the important difference being that the omission of the EUR 8000 fee.

My question is:
- Are there other approaches on the market?
- Are they reliable?
- Are the resultant SAPsystems still supported by SAP AG?
- Are the people who provide these services competent? (I have heard
horror stories about failed migrations.)
