> They basically said "we don't need no stinkin' steps."

Yes, you do.

It might also be worthwhile to remind them that this is not just a beta
test of the product, it should also be a beta test of the documentation.
It's the chance to make sure that you're not missing any critical steps
that ya'll take for granted as you're developing the product.

They're not sending out specs or a datasheet or marketing material to be
tested, they're sending out a version of what people will use. You
should be well within your rights to request that procedures are treated
the same.
