I thought the TB bootloader was already unlocked? People are loading kernels so it must be unlocked... right?

HTC says they won't lock anymore, but will Verizon just allow that to happen? Ultimately it is the carrier that decides, and Verizon is notorious for locking their stuff down. Remember the days of not even being able to put a ringtone on your phone unless you bought it through VCAST? VZW has become a little lax as of late, but it's their final decision how they want to implement the bootloader policy on phones on their network.
In other words, HTC can't just release an unlocked bootloader device without Verizon signing off on it.
As much as i like motorola, if they don't step their game up looks like i'll possibly be getting an htc. i may prefer motorola's build quality over htc but htc has more freedom with their devices. But verizon is saying that a device with an unlocked bootloader can't be activated on their network?
