Default galaxy s5, what are the chances?

What chance is there that the new device will be rootable, with an unlocked, or unlock able bootloader? It would be nice if you could sign away certain warranty right to get an unlocked bootloader. Problem is samsung won't allow it cause they know it will take some customers away from Samsung "hub". And $ are the bottom line.
