    The wording is the issue. Anytime you have to prove something to the FAA its like getting the FDA to approve a new drug. How do you prove 'Less than 1% chance of injury to the crowd at maximum impact force'?

    I doubt they'll loosen the rules about flying, or frying, over crowds, or clouds. I personally think the prohibition against flying over people is wrong but agree that you should not fly over groups of people. We let planes fly over people but don't permit them to fly low over crowds of people and I think a similar rule is reasonable for drones.

    But, again, I really doubt they'll loosen the rules even a little and if anything it's likely they'll find reason to make new rules that are even more prohibitive.
