Because of how my employer purchases software, we can't buy from someone who
isn't Adobe when we buy Adobe software. It's a very frustrating purchasing

We were hoping if we purchase 8, then it would sort of cover us on the extra
use of the 7.2 seats in a retroactive way. We would have, in fact, enough
seats of Frame, we just wouldn't use the 8 copies until we can bring the
entire group forward at the same time.

I can't figure out from the EULA if this is legal or not.

Without reading the 8 EULA, which I don't have access to, yes,
probably it's not legal.
Why not just follow the KISS principle and get three 7.2 packages off
the shelf of a retailer who has left-overs and then see if Adobe will
follow it's usual procedure of giving an upgrade to the current
release if the product was purchased in the release time frame?
Adds up to the same amount of money, but you get everyone on 7.2 and
then upgrade together.
