This Undeadly.org thread clued me in to the problems OpenBSD is having getting documentation and firmware restribution rights for Intel wireless NICs. Theo's letter is not what I would want an Intel decision-maker to read. However, Kenneth J Hendrickson's comment is exactly what I used as a template for an email to Intel's point of contact on this manner -- majid [dot] awad [at] intel [dot] com.
As a FreeBSD user, I recognize that drivers for Linux are not going to help me use my wireless cards. This Slashdot comment explains key points as well.
If you want to use Intel NICs with native drivers, send an email like the one Kenneth sent (but not a duplicate -- explain the situation in your own words). I just did.
