There is nothing quite so sinister about it, it's merely just the way it was spec'd. That isn't to say that Sony won't allow direct access to it in the future. As it stands the second CPU handles the media functions which is fair enough. The PSP is library locked to 222mhz and developers have been able to pull off amazing stuff with that limitation. We'll likely see that restriction lifted when Sony get around to putting out that new battery (30% more life)...
