You need to give carriers and OEMs more control - and the openness of your project is their guarantee of that control.
this here is interesting. from the perspective of someone interested of buying and using the device, another MyNokia* or CarrierIQ are just not desirable. it's one thing to allow carriers (or anyone else for that matter) to develop business models on top of an open platform, but it's a different matter if whatever business the carriers have in mind is something that is deceitful or cannot be avoided/uninstalled.
