Whilst I agree with 'your' interpretation of Peter's situation, that is not
what Richard wrote. He said:

all code running in the same engine is governed by the license for that
engine.

If a plugin is made with the Commercial Edition, it can be run within the
Community Edition under GPL or any GPL-compatible license.

For an ideology that is suppose to remove restrictions on software it's
surprising how confusing, restrictive and detrimental it can be.
