I think the key point is that the firmware is developed and delivered
by the hardware vendor, and not by an independent source.

The firmware is intimately tied to the hardware, and is very much an
integral part of all hardware, to the point where the firmware is one
of the most prominent downloads made available by all hardware

Don't make the mistake of thinking that firmware for a virtual
machine has less to do with the machine just because it's virtual.
