I think in my case it's because my only exposure to them has been in  
bargain-basement Dell boxes.  Most of these were using chips like the  
i810, which had no DRI support if you used 24-bit color.
   I guess I (incorrectly) extrapolated from that to the assumption  
that Intel was only targeting the "value PC" and business workstation  
markets with these chipsets.
