Will SmarBear only issue “ID-based” license type for newly purchased TestComplete licenses?

I heard from my coworker that SmarBear will only issue “ID-based” license type for newly purchased TestComplete licenses. Would you please confirm this?

    Assume that multiple TestComplete ID-Based floating licenses are purchases and used for the instances installed on VMs in a Cloud. I am not going to SmearBear's Online License management system. Is it okay to install the license manager on a VM in the Cloud? If the license manager VM changes (e.g. restart/hardware change/redeploy etc.) in the future, will the change cause issue for licensing? If there will be issues, are there any workarounds?
