(We need to see how the Mac App Store process plays out before bringing Pro and Standard to the MAS as well. In particular, we were hoping that Apple would permit an easy migration system for existing customers to move to the MAS as that's a common and huge support issue with other vendors but apparently that's not here, at least not yet.)
