Have not read this, but as a general FYI, on the linked site, you can define keyword strings (e.g. "molten salt reactor") and you will get email alerts if/when matches occur.

There is no dependable high energy neutron source that the proposed device requires. Transatomic energy proposal of neutrons created by thermal fission and dual mode spectrum to get high conversion ratio appears to be a better idea.

Err, wouldn't an ADSR somewhat qualify (well, pushing up from subscritical to critical)? For various definitions of a particle accelerator striking a spallation target being a reliable neutron source, since if the accelerator trips offline, there go your neutrons...
