Why is the battery inaccessible?

Occasionally my current phone (Droid X) will freeze so bad the only thing to do is remove the battery.

Why is the battery sealed on the Maxx?

Just the way it was designed. I guess its a way to try and get people to buy the maxx for the battery instead of simply installing their own extended.

However there is a hard reset key combo to essentially "pull" /restart the battery and phone.

Holding down the power button, and the volume down button simulates a battery pull.
You have to hold them down several seconds.

mdslup, you DON'T want to perform the "Hard Resets" mentioned above to resolve the infrequent locking-up of the phone. Doing the above essentially puts the phone back into the "out of box" state, and does wipe all contacts and other similar information. It also wipes all installed apps. There is an option to also wipe the SD Card but that must be selected at the time of the reset. Essentially "ERASE EVERYTHING" is exactly what it means.

Instead for what you are describing, simply press and hold the POWER and VOLUME DOWN buttons (for at least 10 seconds). This will perform a "battery pull" and the phone will shut down. In some cases, it reboots on its own, others require the normal POWER button press and hold.
