I am not expecting you propellerheads guys to make a serious financial commitment to supporting native linux (though that would be nice :-) but you could offer a couple of copies of Reason to top WINE developers in exchange for them working through the issues and making relevant fixes to WINE to support it, or at least to get it more or less functional. Generally I do not have problems running windows software using WINE (including Reaper) so i'm pretty sure it would also not be a major piece of work for experienced WINE devs to make the relevant patches
It should work under a virtual machine like vmware's player or virtualbox? never tried Reason under it -- but I dont see why it wouldn't work
Tell me how that goes if you do try that out -- but it's only useful if you have a spare licence of Windows
edit: All USB devices work fairly transparently too
