Well... not speaking for Giles, but the drivers I've seen for closed
chipsets have generally involved a thin open-source wrapper around a
closed binary driver. Letting you write a real open-source driver
while demanding NDA to see the specs you're writing the driver to
seems odd on their part (but much better than the norm!).
