The FAA has been looking to make regulation changes long before the UPS crash in Dubai. The fact is, there has been at least 3 aircraft fires I can think of that were either directly, or indirectly, related to lithium batteries of various types.
Changes are coming, how severe, and what impact they will have on our battery types is anyone's guess at this point.
