I don't think looking ahead to a future where this will require additional electrical code is "FUD". I'm sorry you don't see it that way. Let's say they did have a deliverable, and failed to consider installation issues until that day. Now *that* would be an "end run around reality". Anybody bringing product to market should definitely be considering how it will fit in the regulatory regime.
And while we're on the subject of products that haven't hit the market yet; that's a much more obvious criticism here. The Slashdot community of "ass holes" or whatever it was you said is skeptical because we've seen A LOT OF PROMISES THAT DIDN'T PAN OUT from companies that said they had some new PV tech. Remember a little company called Solyndra?
Anyway, I'm kinda done for the night. I have a late-night Illuminati disinterment meeting at the local grave yard. It'll be a long night, then I've gotta get up, recover from the blood hangover and get to the office in time to review the kitten-killing report. Damn that report. I hope they put the proper cover-sheet on it this time.
