When upgrading from CS5 to CS6, I was on the phone to one of the reps and I recall him saying that in the future they were eventually going to be going the route of "cloud" only, and I got a sense that he meant sooner rather than later.

Given that this obviously will go over as well as a root canal with end users, I can't understand why they're making this choice.

My take is that they're testing the waters to see how much users are going to push back.  They're obviously pushing hard for the subscription model to squeeze out the enthusiasts and only keep the high end users that can afford to write it off as a business expense.  Maybe if there's enough of an outcry they'll keep the option to upgrade from the last version.  This doesn't seem likely.
