You can only regulate so much -- I would say it is reasonable to do so against careless modification, but not to prevent knowledgeable people from doing so. Just requiring to update the firmware is a reasonable barrier of entry IMHO, at least for things such as wireless spectrum use. We are not talking about spectrum scanners or police radio receivers (and they would be hard to prevent anyway).
