Factory non-rooted phones are beneficial for 99% of users. They are too dumb to know what it means and it would just be a security hole.

If you want your phone rooted, do it yourself and stop whingeing. It is not that difficult.

Just chiming in here
I rooted a phone turning it into a brick permanently.
Am I allowed to whine about that?

If it was a permanent brick, my apologies.

Keep in mind that it is quite "difficult" to brick a phone nowadays, especially if you are just rooting it. And I am talking about real unrecoverable bricking here. No boot loops, boot failures etc which are incorrectly called bricking. Most of recent phones have bootloaders and/or other recovery systems. I have fixed at least 10 phones so far that people claimed were permanently "bricked".
