Well, its one week later and the mold has been opened! Just as I expected, an excellent mold.
In the photos you can see its been all trimmed up and all the nasty little pokey strands have been rounded off so its safe to grab.
Once you have started the separation in one corner, stir sticks are the tool of choice. Sliding them down the flanges, going slow you can see the diagonal line of the release as you go.
Everything was clean and the TE fence was removed. Now some 1000 grit and polish it up.
Now onto the P5 molds.

All trimmed up.
Starting the separation.
Easy release with no sticking spots.
Bottom mold is off. Then I took the mold off the table and stood it on the tip and gave it a twist and released the wing plug.
Surface finish right after separating the two halves.
Top surface looking good. Need to remove the fence and ball bearings.
