AFAIK, for the Euro test all flip-up lids are treated as open-face, in other 
words the chin bar tests aren't performed. Just how much protection in that 
area you can expect from a flip is debateable.

Also if there was an issue with lack of padding in the hinge area, I doubt it 
would pass the ECE test - but that could depend on the exact places the test 
impacts are done... I would expect the hinges to be attached to the outside of 
the shell so there should be no effect on the padding?
