My question is this:

Will they only be allowed to play Disney movies that are currently not "in the vault?"
That's the question. Although I have no idea why they continue such an antiquated system.
Because it makes the movies seem more important when they are eventually re-released...I guess?
Yeah, it's artifical scarcity. The question is, as consumers get used to technlogy breaking down all excuses to scarcity - there's no tecnological reason why Netflix can't give you what you want, when you want it, it's just a matter of securing the rights - will they still accept any form of scarcity?

After all, doesn't piracy offer everything you want, right when you want it? (I don't know from direct experience. )
