I understand your points. I am sorry that we disappointed you with the "silent" addition of a Trial message, but actually we have a company practice, that has been around for a lot of time - all our beta products come with enabled Trial message and all clients who have a valid subscription get a developer version until the Beta becomes RTM, all clients that have no subscription are forced to use the Trial.
Our plan is to offer the RadControls for Silverlight for sale separately on November 5, 2008 , shortly after the official release of Silverlight. Currently our newest product suites - RadControls for Silverlight and RadControls for WPF are available complimentary with the purchase of the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX + WinForms + Reporting license only.
In your case, you already hold a license for Telerik Reporting and if you want to purchase the Silverlight controls before November 5, we can offer you an attractive upgrade to our bundle license, which will also entitle you to the Silverlight controls.
Thank you for your feedback and again, I apologize for the caused trouble.
All the best,
The Telerik team
