Why not, AV companies supply their software with a trial period and then want subscriptions. The software still works after the trial but no security updates.

They could also take the view that to have many machines unpatched could be a security risk and disable the OS until subscription starts again.

I agree it may not be a wise decision for MS to do the same but there is nothing stopping them.

Interesting times ahead.
