Paying for Document
Most people do not mind paying for service or products of value at an reasonable appropriate price -- open for judgement of course. Review any service or product for such judgement of your own accord.
It is easy to understand folks not favoring a renewal fee for a service that does not increase value, yet, if the fee is void would the service cease? Most likely it would not, so would the free renewal result in a decrease in service? Possible.
To understand the matter of the cost one must follow the money. Do not listen to words of political decision makers to understand their thoughts, rather follow where they decide money is routed.
When one thinks of the changing of business practices it seems everything is moving toward a subscription service; an annual fee could be thought of as a subscription service under an
a legacy name.
Who knows?? Perhaps there may be a fee to de-document a boat in the future??? Anything is possible.
