In a whole, I'd have to say no. Mango added a block to INTEROPSERVICES. We'll probably figure a way around this, but MS took the iOS method with WP7 in locking down the OS & they are a lot better at it than Apple.
I'm not familiar with Android's Bootloader/Radio Flashing abilities though to compared that. The only devices that have HSPL/RSPL in WP7 atm are HTC's. There is someone collecting funds for DFT team though to get them a few Samsung devices so they can start work on those devices.
