There are no rights and wrongs in tool design. Just trade offs.

Is that what you're telling yourself when some app gets booted from appstore because it might possibly compete with (even future) function of the OS & appstore owner, or when an effort is exerted to lock 3rd party headphones out of DAP line, or when a very subpar processing in consumer NLE essentially destroys the footage?
