This is the nub of the whole discussion here. You clearly don't agree with the application and that's fair enough...I'm on the fence myself. But you are allowing that disagreement to colour your appreciation of the design, to the point that you will assume that items like crash protection were part of the design criteria and were weighted sufficiently to result in failure,,or non compliant submission. It's proven that these Chinese lantern lids offer protection and most likely enough protection to meet the design criteria. Perhaps not enough protection to satisfy you or maybe even me...but then no lid will ever do that In reality.
