Here's the progress of the rounds in my area (up to 1.5hrs away from my residence):
AG Paintball (BYOP field in Lessburg, VA): Allowed after a single demo. Not concerned about enviromental impact (they cited 12g cylinders, 10rd tubes still around from when they were originally introducted). I Played there several times with FS rounds. Most players never knew I was shooting them- those that did usually keyed in on fact I was shooting a Tiberius (non-hopper) gun as a primary and or noting my accuracy.
Hogback Mountain Paintball (Leesburg, VA): Demo'ed, manager even had me shoot him in the back at about 20+ft. They were familiar with the videos produced by Lord Odin (his saftey ones and the biodegradability). Ultimately disallowed, no reason given. However, in the same time frame (demo-response), they switched to FPO.
Pev's Paintball (FPO field in Aldie, VA): Offered to do demo- declined by one of the managers purely due to FPO policy. Since then, I've engaged their store staff and through them, their senior management. Biggest concern- FPO policy and the fact that I'm the only person asking about them.
OA Paintball (FPO fields in Bowie, and Rosedale MD): I offered to do a demo at their Bowie field and they were interested. The Bowie location closed down before demo. Rosedale hosted a Pump scenario earlier this year. Allowed First Strike rounds. No complaints. I followed up with them later and they mentioned I was the only one calling and asking them. Their biggest concern is FPO policy.
Warplay Paintball (FPO field in Locust Grove, VA): I performed a demo, I was given probational status. Owner played opposite of me so he could discretely gauge customer reactions. No problems noted and, he gave me full permission. A couple weeks ago, when I went back, other customers told me of another individual using a T4 with the rounds on a previous week.
FPO is a recurring theme. Injuries and biodegradability seem to be less of a concern. Most fields I contacted were unaware of the FPO fill. Those that were familiar were interested if getting a field color was possible (i.e. Pev's wants all their paint to have orange fill which makes for easier reffing/FPO enforcement). Hardly anyone seems to know that Tiberius can work with fields for specific color requirements (i.e. partner two fields significantly geographically separated for one run of a specific color).

I think it depends on the kind of crowd each field gets - the heavy speedball-friendly fields aren't going to get a lot of interest in stocking FS (and Pev's is a perfect example) since very few people are going to express interest.
It may just come down to economics in the end - if enough people ask for it, I'm sure fields will be more than happy to sell them. Otherwise, it is just another box of paint sitting on the shelf, unsold.
