I believe we're all conflating 2 separate and, really, disparate things:

1) what does the law actually require and is that realistic?

2) how were MU actually behaving, and does that relieve The Law of cutting
them any slack?

The former isn't really affected by the latter; it can still be unreasonable,
even if that is *not* the reason why MU proper won't be getting cut any 
slack which might exist.
