Why would it not be appropriate? It was choosen to allow a binary ABI,
explicitly so that closed drivers can exist. So i don't understand,
all the crying about the vendors now, when obviously this was wanted.

Also if a card is not well supported, it would seem to be perfectly OK to
mention here, as this might lead to someone stepping up and help.
