That's precisely his point, from what I gather: he says that he particularly doesn't care if the media section is part of the pay app, but he feels that the network one should be present in both versions.
FE has network features and root access in the free version (IIRC) and so he feels that he does not need FX (for now) because, when it goes lives, the free version will offer less than FE except in the UI department.
EDIT: Don't know why I felt the need to clarify what tcat said. Anyway, and to answer just last question, when you enter "free mode" it disables both the features you said would go; so everything's good with that.
