I think his use of the word "trick" is what triggered your firewall :-).

He could easily re-phrase the question as "Is there any risk with

Juniper already know that a lot of operators run their kit this way.
Their only recourse is to enforce license limits in software, and we are
seeing that with later releases + newer platforms.
