Default Pro Tools perpetual license - what's included?

I've been a PT subscriber since the subscription beginnings. I'm a bit confused about what's included in my every year renewal and what remains at my disposal after a hypothetical abandon of renewals.

For sure the PT application and the Air plugins and instruments are 'mine' forever (I know the license to use the is mine)

But what about the plugins which were sold as a separate option (the 200 euro renewal option) in the past? As I can see now they are in my account? My concern is I'm always afraid of installing them and use them in my projects because I don't know what will happen if I open my project after a hypothetical abandon of the renewal proces in the future? I mean the set of plugins which appear in my downloads as 'additional value content' (ie Black Spring, Orange Phaser etc)

When you reach the section of the Avid shop:
You get 2 options which I understand in full. Choosing the first redirects me to my acount where I have to click on a aproppriate button to update my 'live' subscription (but there is no info what is included in the price). Choosing the second redirects me to a shop section where almost everything is explained besides there is no info regarding THE plugins.

The plugins are not included in your perpetual license. You have to renew them separately each year if you want to continue using them.

Even though the perpetual license never expires, it will always work with the version of Pro Tools you currently have, you will lose licensing for the Avid Pro Plugins, Pro Limiter, Compressor, etc, and Revibe II, Reverb One and Eleven. If you own separate licenses for these, that will still work of course.
