Corporate ass covering would be having a rider die/get hurt due to a tire failure and Bridgestone/Dunlop deny having known about any potential problems.
Having shortened/modified races aren't ideal but it's better than no race or having a high potential for someone to get seriously hurt.
That's one take on this.
Another is that they decided it was better to not spend the money on testing, and just guess at what they needed.
Which appears to have worked out nicely.
