If it can support life, people will find a way to live there.

I'd not even worry about the HI differences... especially since even at over 6E9 people on earth, we still only use some 10% of the surface (about 30% of the land)...

I agree that people would be able to live there, but I favor Crucis option B "TL'd Habitables being automatically defined as only "minimally habitable" environments, thus being considered as "Hostile" for all races."

With such a very narrow habitable band and such massive air flow between the day and night sides, I would expect very nasty weather in the habitable zone.
