There is no logical reason why most of the Intel management engine is
implemented in software.
It should be a coprocessor with most components implemented in hardware.

Too bad we don't have the Clipper chip in our CPUs though. Then we'd be
using TLS Fortezza. No chance of heartbleed or side channels, but we no
doubt will have other issues.
