Rear door safeguards

From what I can gather, the rear doors on the RX-8 are overlapped by the front doors - what's to stop the rear doors being closed after the fronts and crashing into that lovely bodywork? Is there some sort of locking mechanism in the hinges to protect against this?
Was on order: Hi-power, Winning Blue, Black Leather. Too slow, Mazda

there's a thread about this already. Bunch of guys actually tested this and noticed that the rear door will bounce back out without damaging the front door.
