So if they discontinued the Community Edition you'd be satisfied?

Your portrayal of value is exactly backwards:  the Indy license isn't 
less valuable because most of the features are also available under GPL 
license at no cost, but rather the GPL version is mind-blowingly 
valuable as it includes nearly everything in the proprietary editions 
but at no cost.
