It is not a problem but a marketing decision we know nothing about.  I
have seen Linux drivers, Windows drivers and Mac drivers from their
site.  I am sure that if we asked in a reasonable and polite fashion we
could convince them to release the drivers for *BSD -- or make the Linux
ones in such a way that they work on *BSD.  

Hounding them is not going to help.  It will harm our cause.

Please, do not do that.  It will hinder.
