Can you think of any reason uploading would need to be destructive and one-way?

I know Hans Moravec proposed that decades ago and it became a
pervasive meme, but it's an awful concept and a serious marketing
burden for transhumanism.

I have reasons to think it would be a lot harder than infiltrating the
brain with nanotech monitoring posts and learning how to emulate it.
