Sounds like a pretty smart business model for California.

Eliminate slightly skilled but essentially minimum wage job. Check

Protect richer people from poorer. Check

Limited functionality to solve a well defined need with high probability of success. Check.

Don't let customers play with them by programming them (IE the IBM mainframe model). Check.

They should go far, if one of the 'bots doesn't go all "Runaway" on someone.

Wheather or not they should go far in an ideal world is another matter.
