WLC Licensing Failover - WAN

Currently, we have two regions that have 5508 wireless controllers on  Both regions are in an AP SSO configuration for redundancy.  Each active controller has a 150 license on it.  I do understand that when the active controller has an issue, where the passive becomes active, the licensing will failover.  However, my issue is what will happen when one of the regions has a disaster.  The way that we have our high availability is that all N. American AP's have the European WLC as their secondary controller, and vice versa.  As it is today, if the N. American controllers completely go down, all the AP's that report back to them will(or should) failover to the European controller because of the HA setup on the AP's.  However, since we do not have enough licenses, to support a complete failover like that, we would have to buy addr licenses to support that type of failover.  Are there any plans, in the near future, where Cisco will support a none root port license failover on the WLC's?  So the N. American license fails over to the European controller, in the event of a disaster?  A 250 addr license is around 39k per WLC.  Thanks for any help!
