*when implemented* is the key phrase.  This thing seems to be vapourware,
after two months of poking around via various channels I have yet to find
anyone at Intel who can tell me anything about this device.  The only info on
it is in a whitepaper, the XScale developer network, Intel security folks,
Intel tech support, no-one knows anything about it.  OTOH what's described in
the whitepaper is pretty cool, this'll be wonderful for building small secure
embedded devices, if it ever materialises.
