The typical user doesn't want the freedom before they buy the devices. After they have bought it and have learned of its deficiencies, they want this openness. Take a look at this story about Motorola's facebook page that had a vote on feature requests and the number one was "unlocked bootloader!!!!!". Second most voted was "unlocking the bootloader" and thrid most requested feature was "an unlocked bootloader" and the 4th most requested feature was "something to bypass the bootloader" and the 5th one was "unlocked bootloader" and it so on, take a look at the link below. They want this so they can install custom roms.
