I believe we've answered this before - but again, we're just engineers much
like you all.   The folks that make these decisions are far removed from us.
In fact, we would like these specifications as much as you; since we
are open source engineers, we try to stay away from information that may
harm our ability to freely contribute to the public code.

I know they are aware of the demand for these datasheets, but there are
other forces at work that preclude us just asking nicely, for now.  I promise
that once any information becomes available that will interest this 
group, you will be the first to know.
