Bill D, what you are talking about is referred to in the security industry as "responsible disclosure". While it is indeed an ideal, there are several reasons not to use it:

- companies tend to ignore warnings
- bad guys probably already know about it and it's only fair the good guys do too.

Or as they put in the 19th century, "Rogues are very keen in their profession, and know already much more than we can teach them respecting their several kinds of roguery."
