I suspect that that varies from vendor to vendor. Furthermore, unless it
is specifically stated on the info about getting the upgrade, I don't think
it would hold true, legally.

Unless the license for the new version eliminates the license (or inherits,
if you prefer) for the old version. Which would make the old system disks
as invalid (unlicensed, whatever) as a backup of the old version.
