I'm just thinking that yesterday's survey is meaningless.
Totally agree.
Also you "think" their is no core damage. But what is damage, is is wet, if wet how wet and how far.
No one knows.

Every seller has to make a judgement call as to what is relevant and needs to be disclosed and what is not relevant.

Every seller will draw the line someplace else.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
