Getting the latest version of Android on your device

I just saw a post, which talks about why most people won't ever get the latest version of Android on their phones.

All the observations made are correct. However, when you check out the folks at Cyanogenmod, you see guys supporting all kinds of devices - for free.

Wonder if phone manufacturers should just outsource their device OS support business to Cyanogenmod and let them take care of the porting. Give CM a bunch of free devices and pay them around $10K per major release of Android ported within 1 month of the sources being released....
