I think Apple's going to catch onto this (if they haven't already) and patch this up. What I'm thinking is that it's a low level employee or it's a rogue carrier (or group of them) that is inputting these IMEI's in the system.
That's the reason why I wanted to money back guarantee and why I went with a bigger company instead of the smaller internet companies. I'm hoping that Apple will just tighten their security measures and stop future IMEIs from getting whitelisted.
What I'm worried about them doing is tightening the security measures and then fiding all of the IMEI's that were whitelisted and delete them from the database. That wouldn't be too hard to do.
That's why I also kept my 1.59.00 baseband on both of my phones. That's my backup for the worst case scenario.
