I doubt this is the case, but it's very possible to do, were Motorola so inclined.
this thread if you want to know more about what this "firewall" is. It's really not a firewall in a networking sense. Instead, it's just a third-party hardware agent that either blesses the state of the system and allows it to boot or intentionally bricks your phone.
Supposedly Moto can easily repair this bricking, but that's not confirmed. I've seen somebody claim that it is permanent as well. Who knows who is correct on that one.
