Questions about what happens when you step down in processor groups:

Let's say you move from a P10 CISC system at V3R2 to a (faster) RISC
system running V4Rx in the P05 group.

 1) Do you pay the version upgrade fees for P05 tier V3 to V4
upgrades?

 2) Is software subscription then based on the P05 tier?

 3) What happens if the business then grows to the point it needs to
step back up to the P10 tier in the future?  Is the customer looking
at forking over the normal full P05 to P10 upgrade fees?

If it matters, my concern if for customers in the USA.

Doug
