You are, and that was being very un-excellent, so please refrain from it
in future.

In fact, mjg for one has already explicitly stated that instructions
would be a good thing, but it's not possible to work on them now because
there are no production firmwares available yet so we don't know what
the interfaces will look like. The intended-for-developers prototype
interfaces people like mjg are currently working with look very
different to how the eventual consumer interfaces will look.

It is never a good idea to assume malice where you can't prove it.
