Hm, I think they have to continue with their R&D for an alternate resource, in order to minimize the cost. Otherwise they may not be able to find out a place in market. For any sort of marketing affordability (Cost) is an important factor.

Was off-the-mark estimate on purpose to pacify some groups?

High compliance cost are getting equivalent to technical development cost. How many small and medium organization will be able to afford this high cost? They need to have more sustainable approach or else product cost will be very high.

Well, maybe (but probably not the same job!) Perhaps they should just subcontact the cost estimate responsibility to Tulane.
