Indeed. Paying for legal review and then have the license rejected for
another reason such as non-proliferation would be wasteful.

I've seen that no is being evidence requested about legal review being
actually done vs just claiming legal review was done.

Previously, I've seen on this mailing list statements like "Legal
review: I’ve had a lawyer informally have a look, but no in-depth legal
review has been conducted.", and then it wasn't questioned.

I am not suggesting that anyone lied about it, but the process shouldn't
encourage to lie about legal review to pass that test while not asking
for evidence for those that claim that legal review was done.

Kind regards,
