Nah, just stick the small amount of regulation-fettered logic into ROM, or some other modifiable technology, or don't give the users access to that part of the software storage - and put the rest of the code somewhere that the user can modify it.
Using telephones as an example, the software for setting the frequency etc. might have to go into ROM, but the rest could be left in user-modifiable storage.
