The "equal treatment" argument reminds me of the joke about the Russian peasant back in the Soviet days, who contacted his local Party official and complained: "My neighbor has two cows, and I only have one. Kill one of my neighbor's cows!"
You are asking for equally bad treatment, subtracting a capability if that capability is only useful to a proprietary software developer.
Free firmware would be great, but replaceable firmware beats a device that cannot be fixed at all if it has a flaw.
