I can't speak to the engineering, although I agree that blocking out 32 IDs is strange. I don't believe it's a matter of not knowing what will be used but rather that the firmware has the flexibility to change the ID in that range.

On the ICH10 side, we don't have a datasheet released yet for one of the skus of the product (the other sku has not launched). The other three IDs are from that sku. No cleanup will be needed.

I have no history here, but I'm inclined to agree it's a strange naming scheme.
