Trango Cinch

Hey guys,
I have been thinking this for a while now, how is the cinch an OK work positioning device? The most common place I see it used is on a climber's lanyard. All literature I have read about the cinch is that it is an assisted belay device. The user guide fairly clearly spells out that when there is a load on the device a brake hand must be placed down rope of the cinch. Is there an exception that I don't know about? Should we allow this to be used for climbing comps?

Certified for use with dynamic ropes only. It is both ce and en rated but the en rating is for mountaineering braking devices.
If i can remember rightly, you can use it in comps when used with dynamic ropes....... Basically , i'd be pretty happy to use one if the positioner wasn't invented :)
