I would hope no one from MAPICS would have a problem with that - it was
suggested to my previous employer by our business partner! <grin>

I really don't think that MAPICS wants to be a real heavy on this stuff.
There's a number of ways that they could lock it down a whole lot tighter
than it is, but that would make it substantially less convenient for
customers to use, so I really don't think they ever will.  Most MAPICS
customers are NOT out to cheat MAPICS, Inc., so I doubt that they'll ever
get anal about it.  At least, I hope they don't.

PS - I hope no MAPICS engineers are "lurking."  Did you know that you can
clear the MAPICS user licenses (WRKLICINF) without affecting the users, even
when they are logged in?  We have a 50-user license, and didn't release the
licenses until we "bumped" to 52 users (including temps we had hired during
conversion and then hadn't been here for at least four months at the time).
We really aren't trying to get around buying more user seats, but 50 is
enough for us (we run about 40-42 concurrent users during the peak of the
business day).  I see no reason why a first and second shift supervisor
should not be allowed to "share" a license....  So, we release all licenses
first thing in the morning, around lunch time, and right before going home.
We're on XA 4.0, BTW.
