i will admit to not having installed any recently; the last two were in
march of this year.  but i assure you that back in those ancient pre-iot
times, gfi breakers and receptacles were not field upgradable.  they
could only be replaced wholesale.

but ignoring broken analogies and to the point, in the case of this
draft, the operator is in definite danger of a major oops (that's a
technical term) when field upgrading the software in a router.

despite this exposure, i am mostly of the opinion that the benefits
outweigh the risks with this draft.  but vendors should do their best to
ameliorate the risks with loud warnings.
