My guess, however, is that a lot of the time the driver development is done in parallel with documentation. I.e., Broadcom knows 'kinda' how the driver should interact with the hardware, but the actual details are ironed out when the driver is built.

This means that the documentation will, at best, be done at the same time as a driver would be.

(This is not an opinion on how the Broadcom issue should be handled, but rather a speculation based on observations in the wild)
