Isn't that the same argument Maddox used against Data being the property of Starfleet? "If it was a box on wheels I wouldn't be facing this opposition."

No. People disagreed with you because they disagreed with you.
All right, perhaps I misinterpreted their responses.
In any case, I never should have entered the thread in the first place because I'm apparently approaching the episode from a viewpoint not in tune with the arguments being presented.
I'll stay out of it from here on, and sorry for bothering anyone.
