restoring configuration to different model / reading configuration without device


from time to time we have need to restore XG/XGS configuration from backup to different model. I got information that two things are impossible:

- restoring configuration to different model (this is doable on some other vendors boxes where you need to align interface names during restore)

- to read configuration in plan text, adjust it and upload to device

I would like to skip explanations this is "by design" to make something "more secure".  If this is true, is this oversight from Sophos where they don't know what is performed in field or some  way to induce more sales  Shrug‍♂️

Can somebody shed some light on this?
