Where in the EULA file it says it is compatible with the next
versions? I am not a licensing trusted advisor, nor a lawyer, but it
is hard to believe a previous version says it is compatible with
upcoming, non-released, versions.

Is there a document from Freescale Legal authorities stating this? How
a company can have this statement to avoid any possible legal
implications due the license change happened in the package or EULA?

Stefan change makes it easier to spot those changes and demand the
right actions from Freescale to solve them. What you are stating I
couldn't find in the EULA file. Please point me the place where this
is stated.
