Apple has removed the requirement for an authentication chip in order to develop HomeKit compatible products. All products may now use software authentication, making it possible for software only solutions.

That's not the only barrier to Indigo being a bridge. We'll just have to wait and see if the MFi licensing now allows software bridges.
