If you believe sticking an 'OO advocate' makes you feel more secure about what you know then fine...I really don't care.

It's not about boxing it's about discussing a limited scope issue which is physical implementation. Nobody confuses logical and physical here.  It's you who refuse to discuss physical implementation issues.

What do you think it would pointless to address such issue? The fact that HW Manufacturers won't do it is not an argument to justify it's pointless to discuss the issue of implementation.
