If somebody goes through the trouble of unpotting an NST and removing
the GFCI circuit, I don't possibly see how the NST manufacturer could be
liable. It would be one of the first things investigated in case of a death or
serous injury, and any tampering would be obvious.
I consider it a lot quicker and easier to bypass the brakes on my car by
cutting the lines than it is to unpot and bypass the GFCI in a typical
modern NST. And the car manufacturer has a deeper wallet...
