I am in the process of re-evaluating our MAPICS License status, 
currently on the processor-tier fee based system.  It seems like 
no matter how you attempt to word it, the migration from tier-to-user
or user-to-tier is an 'upgrade' since the fee to re-write the license 
contract starts effectively from zero.  The only difference appears
to be that the re-write fees are lower (in our case) for user-based
pricing than for processor-tier.
The only 'refund' would be involving credit from un-expired existing
contracts.
