This solution makes a lot more sense if the goal is to protect the developer's investment:

  My suggestion would be simply to make a prerequisite for the purchasing of PowerStore. If you own the five main extensions (eCart, SecurityAssist, DataAssist, Universal Email and Validation Toolkit) either by purchasing them separately or via a suite, then you can purchase PowerStore. Otherwise you can not buy it.  

This whole model just went out the window:

  The reality with the a solution is that as a developer, we ONLY have to buy it once, and then we can deploy it as many times as we like... so think about the upside there - the developers can actually charge the client for a slightly modified version of PowerStore for, say $200 - the same price that the customer would get an unmodified version (and I'm only talking about making a few graphical enhancements... nothing major - if this was suitable for the project). But the developer could sell under that arrangement over and over again making the original one-time investment of $200 very profitable.  

The "solutions" are no longer another tool in the toolbox. With today's removal of the developer's license, they have turned into an end-user solution in competition with the outside developer. Pretty hard to find an upside for the developer here. Sorry.
