it would be MUCH easier for the camera, or bluetooth, to *always* work in cyanogenmod if the project had access to specifications for the hardware. a lot of the hardware interfacing in cyanogenmod is reverse-engineered because datasheets just aren't available to the general public.

Manufacturers don't have this issue; they have specifications for their hardware.

This is why we still have HTTP with cookies, HTML, JavaScript and Flash rather than a new protocol.

Flash can be safely ignored, because it's going away.

That leaves HTTP, HTML, and Javascript.
A new protocol that did all the stuff as a transport protocol, markup language, and scripting language would be a bloated mess. There's a reason that the functionality is separated this way. People often use each of these technologies separately.
