I think kids should be able to have TV"s in their bedrooms because they are responsible. However, I only think kids 10 and above should be able to do this. Parents can put Parental Controls on their child"s TV if they don"t want their child watching just anything. They can also limit their TV time. It will be a fun experience for a kid to go through and they"La get to show how responsible they are.

Con

if parents can limit the amount of TV these kids are watching than its kinda pointless putting the television in their room because they don't get to show this sense of responsibility that you claim they have.
but more importantly, even above the age of 10, these are still early ages for these children and they do not need another reason to avoid social contact and doing this will make them somewhat anti-social because they will be alone in a room.
whether its watching television with their family or leaving the sitting room to go to play with sibling while parents watch something boring or watching sports with older siblings, these are important nudges that allow kids to grow in a social environment allowing them to develop vital social skills
