Assuming that everything works correctly, is there any question about what the results will be? Would any surprise whatsoever be fundamentally significant - even "earthshaking"?

I think it would. Any varience from prediction would be the first time a prediction of GR did not return confirmed. It would be an indication (the first real indication) that GR is incorect.
