Maybe. But was it more or less like the indented servitude system which was used to supply labour to the Americas in the early days? (and which continued to be used, after a fashion for some apprenticeships in the UK until the 1970s). As for the "British/American" model, why call it that? There were many more slaves in India, China and the Arab world who had little or no freedomRoman slavery wasn't as absolute as the British/American model and was transmutable.
