I disagree with this.
It is absolutely true that *some* of what the ME does is extremely well
documented and explained by the vendor, web services APIs and all, but
I would argue that in fact *most* of what the ME does is *not* documented
by the vendor, nor by independent research.
Since the ME is colocated with the x86 VM host, has access to all x86 VM
memory *and* is a proprietary machine or subsystem I actually don't
believe that we will ever "know exactly what it does".
