The latest 'looking ahead' gives a nice description of the pi-transfer, introducing the curious concept of a 'rev' that is only half a revolution. It also contains this sentence:

"With Kraken Mare near the field of view, scientists can also use this effort to see how using polarization filters affects the appearance of large bodies of liquid methane on Titan."

Titan followers here may remember why I'm excited about that.

Please excuse the old thread revisited but it's been more than a decade since I started enquiring about this topic. I am delighted to see someone taking a proper look at it now.
