[LinuxBIOS] Distribution of binary images and Intel NDAs...

First of all I'd like to congratulate all of you for your excellent work!

I've seen the LinuxBios presentation and I'd like to know if there is
a technical reason that would prevent the creation and distribution of
binary BIOS files, ready to be flashed onto the motherboard's BIOS.

If that could be done, then the possibility of a developer signing a
NDA with Intel to develop a BIOS for it could be done, right?

I know that NDAs aren't the way for better software, but at least it
allows that a piece of software exists... :S

Thanks for your enlightenment!
