What's the incentive for vendors to use this?

If they don't let vendors modify the software at all, then there is no way for OEMs to differentiate their Android2 phones. Physical appearance alone isn't enough, since most phones look pretty similar these days.

If Google tries to lock things down too much, OEMs might not choose to follow.
