Because that's how the hardware works. If you are making a widget and
you need a fpga or hybrid chip of any sort, then you generate a binary
blob using the chip manufacturers tools.

So, no matter how good you intend on being, how much you love free
software, you don't have any choice. Again, this is ironic since
things like the opencores project are the most free hardware of all
and are not given credit for it in this thread.
