Well, actually, they have been. It is true that Apple has long refused
to give out specifications for mac68k hardware, but after many requests,
they have given out the requested information to the NetBSD folks, on
the condition that they would share it with any interested party. The
Linux/mac68k hackers have the information, and are slowly improving
drivers with it.

Whether history will repeat itself, I do not know...
