Respectfully, I think the people being asked to participate in such a trial
should be told of the shortcomings of the current version of the software, so
they can give informed consent to participate. Skimming the pages on Wikipedia,
I don't see that happening for these issues.

I appreciate that the sudden furry of negative comments right before planned
deployment would be frustrating. However, people tend to give the most feedback
about things, when it is about to affect them. The point of the limited trial
is to get feedback - well this is also feedback that is being triggered by
having the limited trial.
