In reading the assessment, I do not believe there is enough information to slipstream this into the US food system like you are suggesting, especcially as there are no known benefits to the consumer, other than possible cost / yield. It would be of greater benefit to the public to clearly label all products and byproducts of cloned species and let Americans choose for themselves verus sliding into our system unmarked. If the American consumer turns its nose up at it, that is there right and perogitive. If it means more expensive food products, than that is the choice they make. To not labe the meat takes away that right, which seems contrary to everything we are fighting for.
