regarding Lightroom license, where when you buy it, they give you both mac and pc versions of LR.

based on this thread where Victoria answered definitively that you may install it on a MAC and PC with SAME license...
https://photography-on-the.net …=lightroom+mac+​pc+license

so if you actually accidentally were actively using LR in PC and you forgot to "close" the app on your macboo then your wife starts tinkering with LR on the macbook... what happens eventually? license gets rejected if it ever probes apple??

Nothing happens...unlike Photoshop, Lightroom does not call home.

LR is not as valuable to Adobe as PS.

LR does not require activation and does not 'call home' (unless it does it in a very sneaky way).
When I purchased LR3 yesterday I was given the serial and two links, one for Win and one for MAC so I assume it will work for either.

For argument sake.. the license is that the software may be installed on two machines, but only one person can use it at a time.

I have a laptop and a desktop. I have worked on two different images on both machines at the same time. When working on a project sometimes you need more screens and want to play the what if experiment. I do it on two different computers. Never had a problem from Adobe yet. And this is with Photoshop.
