Newton was preoccupied with theology throughout his career but minimized its presence in his scientific writings, largely for the same reasons ID advocates do today

Newton must have been foreseeing Darwin otherwise it wouldn't have made much sense to minimize the presence of theology in ones writings in the 17th century.
Anyway, if Newton managed his to publish his research by minimizing the presence of theology in his writings the same should be possible for ID proponents today.
Or did they do it already?
The research would not be identified as ID research or else it would not be published but the research is ID research even if the researchers say they are anti ID. They are just doing ID research without knowing it or saying it. It would be interesting to see what they would say if they are told they are supporting ID since this type of research is basic to evolutionary biology.
Maybe they are amongst us already.

"[...] the type of information we find in living systems is beyond the creative means of purely material processes [...] Who or what is such an ultimate source of information? [...] from a theistic perspective, such an information source would presumably have to be God."
