However, if the pilot isn't aware of MCAS and the way it behaves, and isn't trained on the procedure to prevent this they might not know ANY of those. The situation and system response caused by MCAS is different from the trained "Runaway trim" procedure, as the system still responds (and stops trimming for a short while) when a trim up command is given or the trim wheel is manually moved. Thus I can imagine following the runaway trim procedure isn't the first thing that comes to mind for a pilot when MCAS goes mad.
