Yes, this is a good point. The problem is with the GPU vendors. In the ARM space, they are where NVIDIA and ATI were about 8 years ago, but in this case, it's all vendors, including Intel.

What Intel chips are your talking about? Intel stopped producing ARM chips more then five years ago...

Intel's mobile chipsets are just like everyone else's (except broadcom now), closed binary blobs running either in the kernel or in userspace.

It seems that Intel might eventually replace Atom with scaled down versions of their laptop CPUs, and those come with documented GPUs with open source drivers.
