A species of inalienablity

Loyalty is a species of inalienablity. 
Loyalty belongs to the class of things that cannot be gotten rid of. Belonging that cannot be severed is the other side of the market. The ground of that inalienablity is the creative act, which, for some reason, prohibits severance between creator and creature. 
Dealing with the severability of the link between creator and creature could well be the point of Shabbat, with the introduction of kol melakha, completion stewardship.
