So, again, please stay tuned. Not for licensing schemes for CentOS, but for
programs for these use cases for RHEL. See https://www.redhat.com/en/blog/faq-centos-stream-updates#Q10
and please really do mail centos-questions at redhat.com with your use cases.
This is answered by humans designing these programs, not by sales.

stated motivation
