    I did look. In all fairness you posted at 9pm on 3/31 for us left coasters, and there's certainly some potential truth to it. Actually it's not the battery that the FAA might deny, but the electrical/charging system that's hooked up to the battery - the one that causes battery cells to ignite. The FAA might say you need to stop igniting batteries since they are needed for flight, rather than putting in a steel case and smokestack so that you can safely burn batteries in flight.
