On the other hand, it would be quite doable to have a fully passive high temperature condenser, that would be a quite reliable and very efficient decay heat remover if the primary loop is intact.

With boiling LiF, the reactor could operate under vacuum. Loss of vacuum means no more boiling, and then some passive liquid cooling system like a PRACS could take over.

I agree it's probably not worth it over the existing liquid cooled AHTR concepts, but it's kind of interesting technically.
