The support might be an issue: If you offer professional support, you have  
set up a solution probably that is tightly integrated with an internal  
ticket system. So it should/must be allowed to use the pro support tools  
(maybe free) that are in place and working already on the site of the  
theme foundry.

I think some clarification about this point would be useful. A requirement  
to use the wordpress.org forum would be a little bit counter-productive.  
On the other hand, users might expect that.
