"Since rooting the phone and flashing something third-party is outside of the skill set of most users, Android needs to be capable of self-patching."

Not only this, but the whole thing should be like updating a computer. Better still: EXACTLY like we do with our computers.

I can by a (say) Dell, and it would come with a pre installed OS. OR, I could just by an "empty" mobile, and install some OS. THAT would be great.

Even if my choice ended up with "your hardware is 36 months old, it is outside the official support time".
