I respectfully submit that any attempt to use such a "feature" in Australia will find things a tad awkward under the Australian Consumer Guarantees.

Let me quote from page 1.

"Products must also:


* come with full title and ownership

* not carry any hidden debts or extra charges

* come with undisturbed possession, so no one has a right to take the goods away or prevent you from using them"

Also, you don't need to deal with Apple to make a claim under this guarantee. It is your choice as to whether you talk to the retailer or the manufacturer or the importer.
