Erm. The question as it stands does not compute Colin :). You can't have 5.5 and not 5.5.1, you always get those minor releases with your major version.

However, if we rephrase it, suppose you had a perpetual 5.0 license, but then instead of updating it purchased a PAYG license, what would happen?

You will always be able to use your 5.0 edition of LiveCode. 

As long as you maintain your 5.5 PAYG payments, we will continue to honor that license type and provide you with updates. If you let that PAYG license lapse, you lose access to LiveCode, from 5.0 onwards. You will then need to purchase a new Commercial license to renew access. 

We will be discontinuing the PAYG license types once we go dual license, so no new purchases of this will be possible.

I hope this helps,
