Right, this is normal - even with widely available reference boards the
schematics are often distributed only under NDA.  Since the information
exposed is at the same level as describing where the devices are on
buses and so on this isn't usually a problem.

Using a fixed voltage regulator won't cause a problem in operation, the
issue is one of code quality.
