Now we see through a glass, darkly...

Disagree. Canon explicitly charge Clients for the feature. If in their opinion c-log implementation is not up to sniff And not in line with their standards then they should not offer substandard quality or at least do not charge.
You are free to disagree, but it's not going to change my opinion.
Canon charges a minimal fee that is less than even the cost of a non-invasive "clean and check" to enable C-log in the 5D Mark IV. If you insure your 5D Mark IV for the full MSRP, UPS charges you more to ship it to Canon than Canon charges to do the alteration and ship it back to you.
It's up to the customer to decide if the limited added functionality, though not as extensive as spending several thousands of dollars more to upgrade to a camera in the cinema line, is worth the $100. You get what you pay for. You seem to think it is criminal to not give the full $3K worth of added value to those who only pay $100.
