If the product _is_ support then it would seem above-board - the wording though implies that you are paying for
WordPress + 3rd party plugins rather than for support which I'm not sure is above-board.

I would think it fair for him to sell plugins/themes that he has created because to me that would be the equivalent of
developing them specifically for a client to use and as such I don't think they would need to be GPL/GPL Compatible

This makes my stomach churn too.  The possibility of an end user contacting the original plugin dev for support is
quite high and if they don't have access to the code in use they are not going to be able to help much.
