To all the people saying this lacks the context to be useful…..perhaps that’s the point to NHTSA releasing it. The context is the data lawyers have likely declared proprietary and were betting on NHTSA releasing nothing over this obviously easily misconstrued information.
This is a variant of "name & shame", I call "put up or shut up"
NHTSA is saying "If you don’t want to be misconstrued, give us the rest of the data. Otherwise here’s the information we can share, which is enough to make most of the big players look sketchy. You can make vague assertions to the contrary but they will be undercut by the fact that you aren’t releasing your data, which is itself, sketchy."

IMO this should only be seen as a brief reprieve for those users who bricked their hub when they tried to factory reset their hub. The Insteon hub can be controlled locally by a smarter device (i.e. HomeSeer) to keep Insteon devices usable.
Everyone else should block Insteon at the router to avoid some horrible "update" from coming down the pike to make things worse. Like when Wink had a firmware "upgrade" that made having a cloud connection mandatory.
