I never review the cover letters. This may make some gasp but I just don't.

It's encouraging to hear that that approach can work.

A little while back I went through a slip LIC install followed by applying
the cume PTF group then the "all groups except cume PTF groups" groups on a
retired i5 box to get more familiar with the process. I was adventurous and
didn't review any cover letters then. But I'm not sure if I'm ready to be
that adventurous on a box that isn't retired.

I would not let a single user on after slipping the lic before applying
the latest cume and groups.

That's what I suspected. What technique do you use to prevent users from
accessing the system? The first thing that comes to mind would be to set
the startup program system value to *NONE.
