Closed cockpits- Closer to reality then we might think?

Just unearthed this recent video of the FIA conducting crash tests on two different strength canopies.

Not quite sure what to think! All the drivers know that when they step into the car there is a chance they might not be stepping out alive, is this just a belated knee-jerk reaction to the accidents of Henry Surtees and Felipe Massa? I'd be interested in seeing what sort of damage a suspension spring could do to one of those canopies...
