What I understand.

To clarify: 1.This enterprise branch is not opensource?

They will continue being opensource, just not free as free beer (you will have access to the code)
2. Going forward to V9 some of the modules have been rewritten for Enterprise only and will not be able in V9 Community?

No re-written, all modules you mentioned are new ones, the actual public free as free beer ones will be the same.

If you considere one of the private ones needs to be freely available (as free beer) well develop it yourself or try to push in that direction.

But honestly the first will happen in some point.
3. Giving an example from the V9 pricing: In Accounting only "Basic Accounting" is available in community, therefore to use: Accounting Dashboard Dynamic Accounting Reports Bank Interfaces (U.S., NZ, Canada) Statement Import: Coda, OFX, QIF Check Printing & Deposit Customer Follow-ups Would require an on premise enterprise contract i.e the modules are proprietary

All this are new ones no old ones rewritten.
4. What modules will be available to saas-6 customers with an Enterprise agreement? Are these modules opensource?

saas-6 is the interim evolved reporsitory, we should talk between 8 and 9.0 officially speaking saas-6 do not exist in terms of support and services. Odoo put this repository available only for testing purpose or for technically skilled people, if you decide use it you are at your own.
5. To summarise: A current V8 install or cloud instance can be upgraded to saas-6, until the release of V9 cloud customers have no officially supported on premise version (they would have needed to stay on V8) If a cloud customer uses enterprise modules in saas-6 and then decides to go to onpremise then they need to disable enterprise modules if they do not have an agreement in place.

They can continue using private ones if they continue paying the on-premise licence, it means be on-premise or SaaS should not excempt the user to pay.

THis is the logistic error people make and the reason we are having this conversation now.

EVERYBODY that make money or manage money with Odoo should pay NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT, sadly everybody confuse freedom with free beer and then we are expending a lot of resources on manage this situation......

But BTW.... that's my PoV.
