comment Why is no cloud allowed in this brief?
Because there might be granite hanging out in that cloud. Nobody can guarantee that there's workable terrain avoidance, so the only way to avoid controlled flight into terrain is to avoid flying in clouds. Also avoiding flying into clouds means you automatically avoid strong airframe deforming updrafts and lightning. Not everyone is starry eyed over the cloud.
