This:
What is the Philosophy of Full Disclosure, and why are we providing the tools and detailing the methods that allow this to be done?

Followed by this:
Tools will not be released at this time, so please do not ask. However, if you are a bona-fide manufacturer of bluetooth devices that we have been otherwise unable to contact, please feel free to get in touch for more details on how you can identify your device status.This:

Sorry ALD, but limiting your stuff to demonstrations to highly paid people is not Full Disclosure. It'd be a good idea to release it now.

we'll show you ours if you show us yours
Well, I truly doubt ALD would in any case given how they respond to this one. ALD, there are phones worldwide showing the vulnerability. Now would be a good time to show what exactly it is to the rest of the world at large in the form of usable source code.
