Yes, this is intentional. Since the vision is supposed to merely outline the 
future we want to live in, not how to get there, we did not want to restrict 
ourselves to software.

If, say, 10 years down the road, hard- and software is so much intertwined 
that we cannot influence the future with software alone anymore, we don't want 
people to say "But our vision says we only do software!".
