    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...
