Hi Greg,
   As Qualcomm mainly provide service to their customer, like Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Quectel, Foxconn, Sierra and so on, so I believe all available VID/PIDs are allowed to use. 
   I also checked who is using Qualcomm's VID in the whole kernel, and I found only some old platform (Gobi 1K,2K,3K which don't do any update for almost more than 10 years) in qcserial.c and ZTE, SIMcom, Quectel in option.c are using this VID. Seems Qualcomm won't do this update in the kernel side by themselves(let's say some new PID, 901x,902x,903x,904x,905x...90Fx, and 91xx). 
   About the question why not use our own VID, because this PCIE+USB mode is for debug purpose. We need to keep a common debug settings for both Linux and Windows platform, also for all our customers like Lenovo, Dell, HP, Telit. 
   Hope you can understand that.
