Why is subscription not mentioned in X-Pack introduction page?

Hate to post a complaint here to start, but I'm really frustrated that I just now discovered that X-Pack requires a subscription to use some features. It almost feels like a "bait and switch". I would like to kindly request that the documentation clarify this up front. Trying to automate X-pack security setup is a hugely frustrating task to begin with, and finding out after the fact that the features I'm setting up require a budget I might not have really turned me off your product.

Thanks for the feedback, I have pinged a few people internally about this.
