I confirm Anders input, result at the end can be very bad for community and Odoo as great OpenSource business Software...

I think its a bad idea. A very bad idea. Looking at other free software 
project this kind of changes has made a lot damage to the community and 
the product in whole. For example; we have done a lot of work with 
"crm_voip" modules - but as a paid module or a module in "Enterprise 
Edition" its impossible to interact the way that makes free software 
rock. To continue our work for customers that uses Asterisk with Odoo we 
have to build another infrastructure which is double work, increases 
cost and slows down the development. The development of "enterprise 
edition" reduces the transparency and will not help customers who does 
large investments in Odoo-development to do that in an efficient and 
strategic manner.

I'm aware that OpenERP SA needs business offerings - and thats good in 
general - but all changes that makes it harder to contribute to Odoo and 
work in interaction with OpenERP SA and other contributors make the 
product weaker and kills cooperation. Give as better better offerings to 
resell to our customers instead.

I sincerely hope that this nonsense ends before OpenERP SA completely 
destroys their ability to make Odoo to a profitable system for all parties.

My 10 cents,
