I've had the 2C for over 3 years now, and I'd have to call this an honest review. The little loop inside on the tent ceiling is such a disappointment, as you described. Just about worthless - other than to tie off that elastic cord to stretch that vent open further. Would be nice if you could hang a stove in there, but I'm willing to bet just about any hanging system will only hover at 6" from the floor or less. I wouldn't trust a white gas stove in there under any circumstances, but a remote canister stove like the MSR Wind Pro works well if you've got a piece of foam or board to buffer the floor with.
One thing not at all mentioned, is the fact that, unless you request otherwise, Stephenson Warmlite tents do not come seam-sealed. Perhaps the authors paid extra to have it done in-house, but I thought a point should have been made about that. They provide you with the silicone glue and some paint brushes for a DIY job.
