> Whereas you can give a 2-year old an iPad, and they can start using it just fine...

What makes you think that if Apple would provide a mechanism in iOS, like SIP (System Integrity Protection) on macOS which can be disabled by technical users if needed, would change anything?

Right now, regular users do not disable SIP on macOS so there's no issue there. They don't even know/care that this possibility exists. So your 2 year old could still use the same iPad just fine.
