They might provide information under NDAs (non-disclosure agreements).
Other vendors also do that, but that's okay if someone is willing to

under the terms of the GPL, maybe after getting clearance from the vendor.
The issue seems to be that intel is less willing to do that than others,
and if they are, they seem to move rather slowly.
