If you want to upgrade the 25,000/night TP to new Cat-7 at 60,000/night, you'll need 35,000/night more points. The TPs retain the original expiration dates. After 9/18, we can use those TPs to book all Marriott/SPG properties.

This way, everyone is kept whole. And Marriott would not need to deal with any mapping to new categories. We'll see what happens. Marriott has a month to figure this out.
Nope, there is no modification of TPs after 8/18. See below.
