Is there a magical little box available that will pass-through HDMI but remove the restriction flags? Alternatively, is there a HDMI -> component converter that will ignore the restrictions? If there isn't now, there's sure to be in the near future (probably gray-market from china)... This doesn't seem like it would be too hard to do. I have an almost-brand-new $3000 TV which doesn't have HDMI inputs, and I'm not going to throw it out because some morons came up with a new standard. If they're not gonna release non-restricted players, they can stick both of those new formats where the sun don't shine.
