But realistically, it's not a "system" at this point, so while they're keeping an eye on it, they're walking the line between watching and beating the public over the head with it and risking desensitizing them this soon into the season. It's just the geeks like us who are watching it. *LOL*
If it's not a "system" at this point, it probably never was, and shouldn't have been classified if that was the case. There is significantly more convection near the center than there ever was when it was considered a subtropical storm. Rotation can be seen on the Melbourne long range radar. I'm not saying it's the most impressive sight ever, but it's no less of a tropical cyclone than it was when it was named, based upon satellite and radar presentation. The WV loop shows shear, though, so even if it is currently a TD/TS, it likely won't survive.
