Registry manager

Why is the registry manager extension only offered on a subscription basis? There are several of us would like to have it available as a one-time purchase, with a key or license of some sort. Having a susbcription-only situation is pretty restrictive. Could you explain your reasoning behind this?

Its an annual subscription, because we are not offering the product as a perpetual license. In the cloud-era, almost all software is subscription these days. IF you wanted to pre-pay for a license for 3 years, we could give you a key that doesnt expire.
