Sorry DDD my last post didn't show in full...will try to repost:
There are two main and fundamental problems with current regulative devices imo, the first is the obvious and old wisdom that shows us the more we know the more we know we don't know about this tech and its risks. In other words we are right back to the Rumsfeld quote of destiny in that respect. The devices you cite can only judge by the known knowns and the known unknowns (at best without corruption of process) and does not put the numbers of the unknown unknowns into their process at any worthy level.
The second fundamental flaw exists with the historically validated and unavoidably relevant issue of corruption or undue corporate influence of the process and to which I have posted some examples in previous posts.
The risks of this tech are not balanced by justifiable caution and precautions in the existing regulative environment imo.
