Just to be clear (Gaming)

What you sign up for, both with digital and physical, is a license. It's the reason why stupid things like this affect physical games also.

At the end of the day, what you get with your disk is the ability to move that license around.

There are no terms or even an EULA when I buy a disc. Where are the terms of the license? Literally the only thing I see is "Licensed for play on PS4 systems in the Americas". Gee, no mention of PS5. I guess I break the license by using back compat! No mention of limits or limitations beyond that.

If it stops working artificially, it would appear they broke the license terms since it is NOT then playable on a PS4 in the Americas. It says that "online play features may be terminated at any time", but it DOES NOT SAY THIS FOR SINGLE PLAYER CONTENT OR OFFLINE PLAY.
