I was thinking the same thing, dented seat tube, that really needs a bump stop of some sort.
Then I saw the bottom pivot. Or lack thereof, I should say. How much is a short piece of metal going to move, if that's what it is? Unless that little piece joining the bottom bracket to the stays is some kind of wonder material, I don't see it moving very much and maintaining it's integrity at the same time.
