I have to believe that while the official line has been "no downgrades" they have worked with anyone who wanted to move into lower price seats. Honestly, there's no reason why a current subscriber shouldn't be allowed to relocate to wherever they want before someone on the waiting list gets seats for the first time...so I have no problem with that. But it's a bit disingenuous to only allow those who are vocal about it to do so. Every unoccupied seat should be available, and when it's your turn to upgrade you should have the choice to select whatever the heck you darn well please. As for those on the waiting list, they can choose whatever is left over and join the upgrade queue in subsequent years like everyone else.
