Maybe I'm just reading your post wrongly, but don't you mean "QFE Lovers read these two scenarios and be careful??"

I am not of fan of QFE and read those reports as being about the problems of use of QFE inappropriately.

I meant at least one of those, possibly both, will back up the suggestion of setting QNH before taxi, and that's it, no qfe, no vertical infringements due to qfe being used by mistake, no resetting altimeters by drastic amounts when busy with other things.

I never set QFE, not even when some clown in a military ATC gives me a matz "clearance" with one, I just do the mental sum and keep the QNH.
