It is a very interesting concept, in theory. We'll see
how/if it will work out in practice.

Nuclear engineering is a difficult enough discipline even
hands-on, as a nonspecialist commenting on speculative
designs I would be way out of my depth.

As a meta-comment I would only say that in a zero-sum
budget it would be a loser.
