RE: oracle EE pricing

I have clients who have operated for years without a support agreement (and without patching). But I would not voluntarily choose this myself, though.
I am curious, would this still be acceptable to Oracle? I have always assumed that you are only allowed to play with it, for testing and learning. The moment you attach a business around it, you have to part with money, even if you do not need patching and support.
Please do not infer that I am putting you in a tight corner. I have thought twice before sending this, but concluded you would be okay since you are the one who brought it up in the first place.

I dont understand something about pricing.
This page says:
Perpetual license/cpu: 47,500$, plus yearly support: 10,450$ 1 year license/cpu: 9,500$
It looks like to me it is cheaper to re-buy a yearly license in every year, than the yearly support cost of a perpetual license. (And there is lot more difference in the first year...)
I guess I am missing something, but I cant find it.
Can you enlighten me?
Thanks in advance.
