I don't have any problems with them getting bound. It's just a normal mmo mechanic, just like gear is bound or becomes bound when you equip it. OP is making way to much of a deal out of it.

It works with those doffs that are bound after equipping them and has nothing to do with being F2P. What you can't up- or downgrind are doffs that you purchased from Ferra, either with dilithium or your commendation rank-up token.
