From my/our point of view there should be clear warning along with Optimus sticker at laptops chasis or/and in marketing material - "Not working with Linux" or "Not for Linux" or "Linux banned"
There is no need for such a sticker as long as there is no "Linux supported" sticker on the laptop anyway and as long as nVidia never advertised the Optimus technology as "Linux Compatible". If they value their money people need to research before buying some piece of hardware.

My take: just a matter of time.
