I've been reading the PDF since last week. I finally got the book on Saturday and started really digging into it. I haven't tried making a character just yet but I am really impressed by the system as a whole. I'm going to make a few characters this weekend to see how all the parts fit together. I'm not expecting to be able to accomplish everything that I want with a playtest document. I also understand that the playtest is for working out the kinks in the base system and wasn't meant to be a full-fledged game with print ready layout.
This is really nothing new though. It went mostly the same when the original playtest for 1E came out 10 years ago. There was a lot of "rabble! rabble! rabble!" early on then as well. The best you can do is flag the worst of them and ignore the rest.
