So you are saying that when I buy/obtain some software (or hardware with accompanying driver software) that installs some .cpl on my machine, without the knowledge of MS, because they have control over the Control Panel itself, they should, through telemetry, not not only know of every .cpl in the world, installed on my PC or any other PC, networked or not, but they are also able to deduce, again through telemetry, in which way all these different vendors are dependent on their Control Panel plugins.

There is no reason whatsoever why they should ask any other vendor: If you in the future no longer will have the option to configure your hardware or software through your current .cpl, how will that affect you? - since MS controls the main CP, they should know, through telemetry, how it will affect other software and hardware vendors if they loose the opportunity to plug their configuration programs into the Control Panel.

I cannot say 100% for sure that MS does not have supernatural powers to deduce the implications of taking away from other vendors their CP based configuration mechanism. As you say: "They are engineers, for christ sake! Or aren't they?" - so they may possess such supernatural powers. Or maybe they don't.
