You're assuming the manufacturers won't slip hidden monitoring CPUs into the mix, like they've done before.

That is a real concern. However, at least it's not baked into the original design and guaranteed to be there. Also, because the design is open source, hopefully it will make it easier to detect parts that shouldn't be there. It's not ideal, but at this point I think it's the best we can hope for.

The intel community will come knocking. And they will put tremendous pressure on any manufacturer to comply. Its what they do.
