Sounds fair and ethical except probably to the fence sitters who watched and waited without signing up of course.
That's the only way to do it. All of the folks that are taking a back seat by pausing and waiting will literally miss the boat. Don't understand why anyone would contemplate confirming the "interest" ping that Oppo sent out recently. It's not like they are asking for a deposit or CC # info to hold your spot in line.
