governments and regulatory bodies could step in

I would LOVE to see legislation FORCING manufacturers and carriers to provide an option to unlock the bootloader (in exchange for immediate and permanent loss of any warranties). But then, this is never going to happen, because of all the bleating about SAFETY! CHILDREN! TERRORISTS! HACKERS! Read: lost revenue! lost revenue! lost revenue!

That said, no government would introduce such legislation.
