You must live in one of those quaint towns where nobody needs to
lock their doors. Around here, the world most certainly IS full of
buildings I cannot enter. At least, not by merely opening the door
and walking in.

As a counterpoint to this whole debate, I'll add that this is all a
matter of tradeoffs. For example, in UO we allowed everyone into
every building.  And there was a contingent who found THAT to be
very immersion-shattering, because they were wandering unmolested
through people's houses.
