By Bell and Kochen & Specker theorems those primordial variable
should be non local and contextual, or 't Hooft should be clear about
the different (from QM) experimental predictions his theory gives.
Perhaps I miss something.
Of course you know I believe indeterminism is a consequence of
Mechanism, so 't Hooft move seems to me without clear purpose. I mean
even without QM, I expect verifiable non-locality and contextuality,
