    Since I know Apple restricts you to one Apple ID on machine at any one time, otherwise a transfer must be done which locks you in for 90-days to new machine, I was studying up on why the 90-day lock in is tracked..

    Ideally, Apple tries your Apple ID *and* unique machine ID ever time u authorize.

    Thus, what makes it possible to still not be able to use multiple ID's on the same system freely IF a given system is NOT authorized...??

    Since it must pair the machine unique ID (and) the Apple ID up to proof, one would then assume that since it removes this unique machine ID from database on Apple's servers, the Apple ID is not paired to anything since the machine(s) are no longer authenticated.. which I then assume would allow you u use any ID u want without restriction...

    Or am i missing something else here?

    Pretty sure the message says you can have up to 5 machines authorised per account.

    Specially looking at the lock in and the unique machine ID than anything really. I know of the 5 machine per ID
