Assuming the pilot program does some form of reachability testing and then 
some effort is made to notify those with bad filters (good luck), then at 
least this notifies them before it's a real inconvenience for anyone.  
They may or may not choose to react, but at least this puts them on notice 
that they have a problem that will be real in the near future.
