If I didn't buy the device, and I only have the license to use it, then there should be no warranty expiry. The device is still theirs and if something goes wrong, they should fix it regardless of how long I owned it.

Am I off base here?
Yes. It's no different than when a business buys a system. Typically there are maintenance plans sold if you want ongoing support. Until the system is no longer supported, then support simply ends. Nothing is supported forever.

Apple does sell extra support, do they not? Same thing, they spell it out to you up front.
