I bumped these up to FASA; hopefully it'll be clarified in Second Run.
The "don't have to turn" phrase in the RBT can be taken one of two ways:

- The Runner can use the trait despite being turned ('cuz everyone's
turned on a shadowrun), but only once as normal; or,

- The Runner may use the trait on a shadowrun as many times as desired
(but only x number of Runners at a time).

It strikes me that this might be a case of admission by omission, but
I'll wait for the DLOH's response.
