True enough! But I think we've been going in the wrong direction for quite awhile. Nobody complains about DVD players that only work in certain parts of the world, and blu-ray DRM is flat out evil. All to punish law abiding citizens, not pirates who circumvent this stuff with ease.
Agree that jb = evil is a made up Apple thing, and I can get how they think it might affect the quality of the device - I've had slowdowns and hiccups from jb but I know that's the price for cutting edge stuff. Most people have no idea. So, I get how they might want to discourage it.
But, I'd rather they pour the law dollars into innovation than trying to prevent it.
