But I do have all the prior stuff 8.2, 9.0, 9.1. So... did I shoot myself in the foot to save $25? Has Novell gone proprietary with this type of restriction which everyone on this list tells me is has NOT (even YAST being open source now)?

I think you only need to explicitely agree to that if you're using their 
support services in any way.
I've never used UPGRADE products of them though, I always used STUDENT 
versions, which are the same as PROFESSIONAL in every way (but the 
price). I've never heard of such a thing anywhere though, so I don't 
think there's much of a problem there.
They surely don't have gone proprietary in any way, at least not more 
than Fedora/RedHat, Mandrake or other such distros...
