I have never paid for the UC as never saw the benefit (and rarely flew domestic on a regular basis until last year) and rarely use the UC when eligible these days as better options, but I would be annoyed if I paid for the UC and my usage would now decrease. Perhaps a matter or perspective of whether you are based in a hub or not.
I am also looking at Priority Pass Lounges now, because of my international travels.

This policy impacts me because I do fly OAL out of HKG often and the UC membership has been a benefit to use HK United Club.

Sounds like it's time for a class action if UA doesn't carve out an exception for lifetime members.
Lifetime member here! Not happy at all!
