I see problems for operators

Granted, this may get rids of scams like preventing tethering, but as a mobile operator I'd be worried if someone can start messing around with the air interface - unless that is still not "open" to get it certified.

There are, currently, no holes which would allow you to make free phone calls. What you can do is denial of service, but that's no big deal on a wireless network.
