Poor. Lots of wrong-headed ideas. You can do better.
1) Overlap with frame and pedals (e.g. careful with track stands).
2) Having the cable-braze-ons on the top-tube and the disc braze-ons is absurd - this snags and tears your expensive tights (plus it's butt ugly) when setup for disc. Pretty much, you have to be careful whether you decide to track-stand (snag foot fall over) or put a foot down (tear $150 tights) at a stop-light.
3) The 132.5 rear-drop-out spacing makes it difficult to put the rear wheel back in after a flat (or anytime).
4) Chain-stay mounting of rear-disc-brake braze-ons makes it impossible to use a torque wrench for the rear-most CPE bolt when installing an Avid brake.
5) Happily, it does happen to accommodate an HP-X frame pump (yahoo!) - no pump peg, though.
They need to lay the head-tube back a bit, dedicate the frame to disc-brake-only, position the rear disc-braze-ons in the conventional position and use 135mm rear-drop-out spacing. I.e. all of their innovative features are stupid ideas.
Thank you for your feedback.
