What I was trying to show was that the very word "circumvent" is
fraught. That was all I meant with my locked door analogies - and like
all analogies they break if pushed too far. Stop circumventing my
analogies! :-)

My point is that it is not just a technical issue. The intent of the
person doing the circumvention, the intent of the person doing the
securing, and the nature of the technology being "circumvented" all have
to be taken into account.
