Why would this be risky? Developers who receive a B1 as shipped from
factory (bricked) are being advised to upgrade to Q4B06 in the wiki,
but I'll happily substitute that for the latest released OFW.

That's bogus -- we are asking *all* recipients of B1 units to test
with the latest version of OFW as it is released. If you brick your
unit doing so, help us debug the situation, and don't worry about the
hw. If you cannot unbrick it, I'll gladly send another one.
