That's what DJI describes also in their manual.
It was never meant to be for flying around a Hexa with only 5 props.
But you have a much better chance to get it down to the ground without crashing it in case of an emergency.
For a more realistic test you need to be able to switch off a motor in flight.

We still haven't tested L1ac in depth - what you have seen so far is just a proof of concept. It's still at a very early stage and will not be part of the beta test.
