Why is it required to open an account in order to receive software updates?

When I read the news about your phone, I was so excited that I ordered it immediately. The excitement lasted until I realized what I had to do to receive software updates. In order to receive software updates I need to create a Jolla account. Why is that required? Is there a possibility to receive updates without an account? In my opinion this behavior contradicts with your principles: Foster freedom. We do not believe in walled gardens, we prefer the open sea. We want our products and services to free you to express yourself as you see fit, not lock you down to a view of the world imposed on you by us. Having to create an account does lock me down to a view of the world imposed by you. Please review your policy. Thank you.

Similar to service packs for MS Windows.
