What I'm trying to convey is that as a contract worker I have access to 
some information I may not be authorized to divulge. This is a public 
forum, and I need to tread carefully so that I don't divulge information 
that impacts my employment.

The starting point for this conversation was HDD insertion/removal event 
Which then evolved to HDD MFR/Model Num access.
Which then evolved into RAID controllers.

It may turn out that Intel does want this feature as part of OBMC.
It may turn out that Intel is amenable to the community implementing a 
RAID/BMC feature.

The transition to RAID controller has initiated an investigation into 
what Intel may be willing to enable regarding OBMC.
