So people can open up a bunch of stuff ...
In the UK, yes. Thanks to their DSRs (aka, the "Buy American Act"). This is one reason that British eStores have higher prices than US eStores for the same items.
Customers can buy whatever, rip it open, try it out for seven working days from delivery, then ship it back, no questions asked. Their only obligation is, "reasonable care of the item", and they can throw the packaging away.
As a British eTailer, my response would be, don't mail the original packaging. Open every blister pack, send the item that was purchased, and keep the original packaging. The DSRs only address the "goods", not the package they arrive in. That way, if the items are returned under the DSRs, the seller still has the packaging.
