It's the disease of this era - "You better keep plowing ahead with new safety devices, OR ELSE! We don't care if they're not actually reducing injuries or if they're making your life hell."
You have to wonder why the majority isn't stopping themselves and asking "What the Sam Hill are we doing to ourselves?"
The TR recepts are obviously a specialty device, to the unbiased observer. They're receptacles with a permanent child safety feature - no one else is going to be "tampering" with a receptacle, that doesn't deserve the consequences!
Put TRRs in childcare centers and anywhere else young children will be indefinitely present... and require them nowhere else.
All in all... the TRRs are a perfect example of the poor state of codewriting, manufacturing and design principles. The basic forcing function (a design buzzword) of the receptacle is built on sheer ignorance. Even very recent polarized plug prongs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, likely half of which don't play well with TRRs. The same goes for grounding prongs, to an extent - they are not always the longest prong.
