FileMaker ID - How should it be licensed?

I love the idea of a FileMaker ID and it is great to see it on the roadmap, but I am a little worried about where this is headed. It seems to be licensed as a server connection and not as an individual. A single person will need to be licensed on each server or cloud deployment.

 

This is is a big departure for FUL where once a user is licensed once, they are able to connect to any server the wish. This of course only worked for FMPA. I think the real answer needs to be Support for the and FUL process but including go and WD clients as well. License a person for FMID, not a connection. There are many situations where this ends up double dipping on licensing for certain users and many times over for developers.

 

Sounds Like FMI is looking for feedback on how to handle this so I think we should do that as soon as possible. Any other ideas?
