Most people wanting region free are the ones browsing torrents and seeing all the PAL files when they need NTSC etc.
Most people won't have retail imports to back up.
However, for those few people that do want an import (for whatever reason) I guess they can't play it even if it is a retail copy....
I know nothing about firmware, but I assume that eventually someone will find a way to spoof it to report region 1 (or whatever) straight to the CPU no matter what the disk is.
I know that with a modchip you can play any region on XBOX1.

How feasible this is depends on how the 360 stores its region info. In the case of the original Xbox this was on the EEPROM, so a PIC could have been used to rewrite the region code, had the whole system not been blown wide open first
