Can you give a reason not to provide the owner with any of:

  - A printed copy of the private key corresponding to the chip he paid for.

  - A button in the back of the chip that disables "hostile mode" and makes
    it sign everything that was asked for (so-called "owner override")

...other than implementing features that restrict the owner?

  The DRM opt-in fallacy: "Your data belongs to us. We will decide when (and
  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
