I don't buy used bodies (or I have yet), but I do sell used bodies... And if I get a reading of 10K actuations... and my customer decides to confirm that amount... I hope the camera body tells the other program the same number... regardless if it it is correct or not. 

So... have you tested the variety of programs to see if the number is the same across the board?

Every tool I have tested and traced uses the exact same PTP command to retrieve the current shuttercount, and as such, each tool will report the exact same number (as far as I know this is the only way to retrieve shuttercount).

It's just weird that this number doesn't always increase properly (while the counter in the filenames for example works fine)

Keep this thread, use one of the tools when selling a body, and give the buyer your count AND the thread to show that there might be differences or that it's understood that there has been a variation noticed. Then if Canon Repair later gives a "more official" (and different) count for that body you are covered.

Can I use this license perpetually... so if I change computers or operating systems in ten years, I can move the program to the new computer.
