Manufactures have been doing this for decades. They remove the serviceability from an item and then list a replacement spec for said item.
Mercriuser and volvo did it for their drive yoke u-joints calling them perma-lube. Where a previous u-joint properly serviced would last 800 to a 1000 hours running time They replaced the joints with a plugged zerk hole. Then listed the service life at 200 hours. Many of those joints did not last even 200 hurs.
