The downside could easily be that it's legally not possible to open source SPP, remember they use custom processing chips in the cameras which probably require custom libraries to work with the output.

But in general for whatever reason, companies just don't open source that stuff - does Canon or Nikon? No. The point you made about not being a software company applies equally to them.

Yes and yes.

All the protectionism is of course stupid. But ... I think that the human race being descendants of the survivors of ship B, is the main cause of this situation.
