Re:I don't think VIA completely understands

Expecting people to do your work for free sounds like a great business model. Also, it's VIA's name on that hardware. Their reputation if things don't work or cause data loss. People expect drivers when a product is released. Giving out specs before release so drivers can be created for free can also take away competitive advantage as competitors will know exactly what you are working on.
