Odd; mine is a mid-2010, and I just installed it without an "enabler"
(whatever that is). I do have the occasional problem though, since Sierra
is recommended for this model; I needed HS to run some applications that I
wanted i.e. all the old ones that I installed under Sierra and have
disappeared from the store.
Yes, I think that's the one.

That is indeed annoying; they must be catering to a certain demographic,
like Penguin/OS. At least FreeBSD sticks to version numbers which I have
no trouble remembering and are easily compared.
