Should take your own advice it seems.
DMA is required, not intel VT-d. VT-d is an implementation, and AMD also support it, apple also support it, and arm also support it. They all support the IOMMU, and I expect all of them will support and pass validation. Same reason why TB3 was "intel only" but was supported by AMD.
So again, what restrictions?

USB 4 standard came out last year.
So you expect USB 4 devices to be released before you have USB 4 connections in your hardware?
Intel releasing TB4 is done before actual implementations of TB4, because you know, you need to stick that hardware somewhere, and not where the sun doesn't shine.
