Default [Q] Unlocked Bootloader

Just a random thought, but why has the G2 not gotten an unlocked bootloader or S-Off yet. This seems like quite the popular device with pretty decent support, so what gives? Is S-Off even a concern on this phone like it was on my HTC Rezound??
Motorola Droid ---> HTC Rezound ---> LG G2

Well it's not that it isn't as important, but it is harder than ye ole days of S-off/unlocked bootloaders. Depending on the G2 variant there are differing solutions to accomplish similar to what you are thinking of.

Not currently an issue - but may well be with future Android versions on this phone, All those folk panting for (generally disappointing) updates might well repent in time...
Moto G 16GB (Good noddy phone for Mrs Ash)
Sony Xperia ZL - Actually better than the Z for me - and LOUD!
LG G2 D802 - rooted Stock with Bloat removed
HTC One - good and terrible in One package
iPAD 2
