Another important dimension you could add to the "Risks surrounding intellectual property and competition" section is the presence of an adversary in the cyber world...

Especially for detection tooling, if the source code of all the detection methods and instrumentation self-protection mechanisms employed by tooling were OSS, adversaries would be easily able to build their offensive suites to bypass them.

I think this makes OSS particularly challenging in the cyber space vs other areas of the tech industry, particularly in the Detection subspace.
