Doesn't the DVD software allow you to change the region code a small number of times, before locking the region code at the last one set, forever?

Yes it does. I think it's 5 or 6 times before it locks forever at the last region you changed to. IIRC, if you update the firmware with a region lock free firmware you need to do that before the DVD player has been locked (i.e. changed region 5 or 6 times).

I wonder how much warning you get that you're about to use up that final change.

Never tried using up the final region but I wouldn't be surprised if you just get a single "this is the last time you can change a region" warning message after having inserted the DVD.
