[Petros Kolyvas] "Since one edit bay may have three different users at any one time"

Why not just tie the Cloud account to the workstation instead of to the user? Create a generic ID/password for each workstation and you manage that. Whomever works on that station uses the generic account. That way you wouldn't have to do the business plan. Instead you could just do the $50/month individual account ($30/month if you already have an exisiting CS3 or later license) for each workstation.

Ultimately, I think Tom's main argument is the lack of perpetual license for the software. I think that's something Adobe should address somehow. Price-wise, the Creative Cloud is the best value I've ever seen if you run several Adobe apps - PPro, After Effects, Photoshop, Lightroom, etc. But again, Adobe appears to be moving to a software as service model and that's a drastic change for most of us.

You can. You can buy 3 or 12 month pre-paid memberships. You should probably read more about it on Adobe's page. It would answer many of your questions -
