Great, please let us know what they say.
As mentioned it was my sense that the fire rating test was for attics and non-occupied spaces. Where the code assume people, and hence many ignition sources, don't go regularly (not to say there aren't any). So I'd guess the manufacturer says this is a non-approved install, but who knows.

edit: and if you want to help the field of fire science (and my job) also post the result of your ignition test
