The rest of it is covered by my second argument. They don't want you to see it due to highly proprietary stuff running there.

And if you agree about code signing, do you really believe that letting everyone see it, but then not allow anyone else to change it, is a good idea?

It's better than not letting anyone see it, and also not allowing it to be changed.

That is better than nothing, especially if the vendor can be asked for a fix.
