I seriously doubt Amazon is going to lock it down. They know they would get flooded with complaints. When we all screamed bloody murder about combined email addresses on the Kindles in September. Amazon listened and gave us back our unique ones when the Fire came out so I don't think you have to worry about them pulling anymore major changes like that. They want to out sell NTab which isn't as easy to sideload apps on.
