I don't quite follow the sgs line of thinking. I had android 4.0 on my Samsung galaxy s phone via Cyanogenmod. It ran *better* on 4.0 than it did with the stock Android 2.1 it came with.

The process wasn't error prone or difficult, unless you have a very, very low threshold for those.

Maybe not all cases are error prone, but an error during the process would brick the device for the average person. Let alone, it requires a full backup.

Either you have too little faith in the average person, I have too much faith in them. I'm not sure which, but ... I'm starting seriously doubt that I'm right...
