The usual connotation is one of secrecy.

'Private' as in 'private property'.

A threat to ICGA-type tournaments...

Still same response. Why should it be a threat to ICGA-type tournaments. What are 'ICGA-type tournaments' anyway? Tournaments that require presence?

Quote:
Many programmers collaborating on a single engine does not fit well with the ICGA approach, which aims at individual or small groups of programmers.

I don't think so. What aspect of the 'ICGA approach' do you see as troublesome for large open-source projects? Any of the authors could enter it; GPL will be recognized as implicit permission by the other authors to do so.

Quote:
Anyway, "the more the merrier" does not exactly apply to a 2-engine "tournament".

Indeed. It is obviously also not what ICGA is striving for. But you have to adapt to the circumstances.

Quote:
What is your explanation for the demise of their tournaments? Is it entirely due to their own doing?

Lack of sponsors. No one is interested in computer Chess these days. Having computers play Chess doesn't promote sales of anything other than the Chess programs itself. Lack of funding makes it impossible to have the tournament in attractive locations, and the computer Chess community has to foot the bill itself.
