It will also look better with the aero cover on it but there goes the weight weenie version of it.
I suspect shortly a tester will reveal some spy shots and a riding impression.

I was just about to ask about that, a picture with the cover on might be nice.
It's definitely a 'marmite' crank, you either love it or hate it, there doesn't seem to be an inbetween, except for me, I'm still undecided!
I like the look of it on its own, but I don't think those chainrings suit it, although add some blue anodised chainring bolts and it might help things along a bit. I'm not sure that it will suit every bike either, but at the end of the day

Over engineering carbon fibre, surely not....
Actually, most mass produced carbon fibre parts are over engineered, we still have a fear of taking carbon to its absolute best because some silly person will do something they're not supposed to with it and seek compensation. Hence why small run boutique parts are super light, but the mass produced parts aren't (as a rule). Compare the first carbon frame weights with say a Storck Fascenario 0.6. We also don't know about the laminating in those rods, not all carbon rods are made equal
Like you, I'm looking forward to the tests and I'll pass judgement then
Especially when the derailleur is definitely set up wrongly. But then perhaps that intended to be ironic as well as oxymoronic!
