Considering Lorenzo's attitude, I'm sure he's taking into account the

miscreant tries announcing wacky routes.
Bull. His attitude (at least to me) was he needed a "consensus" of the
operational community before he would feel compelled to provide more
notice and/or postpone the testing to provide said notice.
