My understanding is that this was not a fit-for-flight test article that failed and only a test used for extrapolation of some proposed features. Surely the final aircraft configuration will meet all the published requirements.applicable to growth airframes validated by many hours of safe-flight experience.

Before condemning the FAA. and Boeing perhaps the posters could cite specific exceptions to a rule that applies in this case.
