Default Does upgrading to PT12 (with support plan) prevent licence/asset sale?

So, with the recently lapsed plan reinstatement fees for HD clarified and the continuing assumption that lapsed vanilla support plans cannot be reinstated (i.e. a new licence is required), a dilemma surely being considered by pre-PT12 fence-sitters everywhere ...

* Does upgrading to PT12 mean that you can no longer sell/transfer your Pro Tools licence/iLok asset?

* If so, and with Avid showing no signs of changing course as we move into the final 6 months of the old licensing regime, it appears that the decision to stick with Pro Tools or move to a new DAW is now a $600 question for vanilla users

* Current 'buy and sell' listings for perpetual licences are around the $400 level so, if one upgrades for $199 on the last day of 2015, on the next day you'd have lost the opportunity to sell your licence for $400 (on top of an extra $200 out of pocket)

On the current terms and conditions, I suspect some users wouldn't upgrade to PT12 with a support plan if Avid gave this away - perpetual licences will still retain value after 2016 just because they are transferable?!
