Corporate backing such as that you mentioned regarding ALSA won't help
you much if you have to beg your XY company for specifications. Very few
companies (such as RME or audioscience) were kind enough to provide
hardware and specifications or drivers. And you can forget about NDAs if
it comes to open source sw.

The ideal situation would be - companies contribute drivers for their hw
to the ALSA project.

I'm not saying 4Front is an evil company(i don't know), but there is a
conflict of interests - alsa vs. oss.
