The beans leave "basically" intact. "Basically" brings many visions to mind.

Not only would my frugality keep me from buying this coffee "dung" - the thought of where it had traveled while drinking it would over-ride any extra "earthy" or "musty" favors......I wonder who was the first person to try this process....and what he was thinking?!
Imagine trying to sell that in starbucks! :-P

I don't see the problem. That's how I get some of my corn. I just reuse the "leftovers" that are still mostly intact.
