They may not use dongles with this version, but how do you know that the
money you just paid them isn't going into development of dongle protection
for the next version?

Seems to me that there is a cleft stick here. You are better off stating
your preference when the vendor offers both types of protection by
purchasing the style you want, thereby voting for more of that protection
style, rather then going with a vendor who has only the one style, and may
change at the next version.
