The end of the front brake cable is secured to the 287V lever in a somewhat mickey-mouse manner that I would be reluctant to do on a customer's bike. I bent the end of the cable down over the internal block in the lever, then clamped it with the small screw on the front of the lever. I did a bit of filing on the block to make room, and to reduce the sharpness of the cable bend, but even so I'll be checking the cable for fraying on a regular basis.
