Perhaps I am way off base here if so my apologies. Collectively with the
experience, knowledge and wisdom in this group you all can support
yourselves and not having to rely on Oracle Support to resolve your DB
issues. I know updates is the paramount concern amongst you all but if you
went to a term license matrix without Product Support/Updates and found a
vendor which could supply you a discount on these, you would be saving allot
on yearly support.  
If you bought term licenses I believe the released patches, bug fixes,
security, etc.. should be made available for that version of the DB.
As a 1 yr term license is 20% of the perpetual price and support is 22% or
the perpetual price(this figure also increases yearly) you would be ahead of
the game. If you got a 10% discount on the term licenses you would defiantly
free up some budget an possible shine in your department. 

Again if I have missed or overlooked something here please let me know.
