Exactly. I have 2 xboxes and 2 ps3s. My MFW PS3 has been on PSN 1 time and that was last night when I was playing with 4.30 CFW. I logged in, said hi to a friend, logged back out. 360s are the same way. JTAG/RGH boxes don't need to be on Live. One of my 360s is a trinand RGH with a flashed drive. I can have all my homebrew and USB game loading on my RGH nand but once I flip my switch I am in retail mode. I cant see my homebrew, I cant load games from USB, and most importantly I really cant cheat as easy as I ould with a RGH. Now my drive is flashed mainly for my retail side but that is so I can use backups on live. Yes I say backups because I have a Lite ON 0800 drive and a kreon drive to rip 360 games, and a burnermax drive to burn them. Playing a backup isn't the same as a full on modded box. With 360 there are modded xex files and this is essentially the same as a modded eboot. Those do not work on retail.
Most modders wanting PSN access are going to end up giving a legit user some type of bad experience at some point. You don't always have to cheat to ruin another user's experience. We all will knowingly or unknowingly do it at some point. How do you think the legit user feels when they find out what MultiMAN is, see a "friend" using it on PSN, yet they have to go buy their games. I have lost a good PSN friend because of me being a modder. He actually accused me of knowing about and helping with the PSN hack. We haven't spoken since, and he would have never have associated me with "hackers" if he didnt see me using SNES and knowing I could just load games from HDD without a disc. He also saw the SOCOM cheats and knew a box like mine was what was responsible for that game turning into a cheaters haven. Guilty by association but he brought up a good point. "Every MFW PS3 on PSN was a potential cheater." Sure OFW has glitches and lag switches and blah blah blah, but we have cheats. There is a difference

But back on topic
why isnt lv0 ultimate solution?
I could get into it but I am about to leave. Everything I am thinking is just theory and I would love to proven wrong, but these"keyz" and all this "we have lv0" talk is misunderstood. Sony has a few tricks left in our PS3s that can stop us from installing any further CFW like we are right now. LV0 is a big step and I am happy we arent stuck on 3.55, but it isn't the final solution....not in a long shot.
