What's the point of a pilot phase

… if not to check for problems and test emergency routines?

Certainly Galilieo has had more than its fair share of problems, but it seems both a little early and churlish to be making fun of it at this stage. We've become more or less dependent on sat-nav, so having a service not beholden to the military of a single government would seem like a sine qua non, n'est ce pas?
