It most likely was.

I'd think that it simply was a random (upgrade/downgrade/killgrade/...)
breakage (quote Jeremy: "sometimes you've gotta love Linux") causing CXO
to go down, unrelated to any notification of *support* expiration.

It might be a good idea to state in support expiration notifications that
this does *not* result in usage expiration of CXO at the same time,
i.e. that CXO can be used in an unlimited fashion, yet without support now.
But OTOH such a statement might be counter-productive for new support sales ;-)
