Customer lock-in is the default for proprietary software. A software
vendor can include exit clauses in the contract. Is I understand
correctly, Odoo Saas strategy is to let think that a database
formatted by Enterprise is usuable with Community for all Community
features.

Free software was historically invented to overcome this point.
Since Odoo and some others sell proprietary software, there isn't much
we can do to comfort our propects against customer lock-in, but bet
that customer will find enough in the futur open-source editions.
