The thing is, they don't have to be. A housing unit is built, quality LED bulbs are installed and 20 something years later someone looks up in shock because the light didn't turn on this time.
The incandescent legislation is annoying but necessary. People are generally stupid and won't think 5 minutes ahead no matter how beneficial it is. The people that really want to keep incandescent bulbs for some reason can find them online (and it's not illegal to use/have/buy them, despite the extreme right wing crazies saying it is)
I've installed thousands of LED bulbs in businesses (thanks Xcel energy rebates!) as a side gig. None of them have gone out, nobody can tell they're LED and they've made a huge dent in the electric bills (A/C and raw lighting costs)
