That goes for most of the birds, part of the field. Dockable stuff like
ISS and Hubble and a few others share this property. But the price for
that kind of action would be... considerable. They have the redundancy,
so no real need. What they do want to is bring it into constellation
since it is kind of working and sits there, but if they are not sure
that it will work with receivers... they could have it just flying
there... they have more birds coming up the launch-pad soon enough.
