Is this going to be necessary, or will there be a point at which the 
license change occurs, with the state as of that change available for some 
period of time? It's impractical for me to manage local files with my 
edits, and I don't want to burden the servers unnecessarily by running an 
automated daily download of the (wide) area in which I'm editing.
