What you describe may be right, but it does not mean, that OpenERP is not truly free software or open source (in the sense of the Free Software Definition, the Open Source Definition, or the Debian Free Software Guidelines). You and everybody else is still free to offer support or write upgrade scripts yourself. AFAIK, some OpenERP partner company do exactly that.
