Really good point!
Given how stupidly we humans update risk, this might actually work. I
just spent the day in the stratosphere of insurance, and can report that
even big insurance companies often adopt new forms of risk management
only after a disaster has visibly occured (they blame the market, which
doesn't want insurance against stuff it has not seen in gory detail yet
- same thing).
"Dont try this at home" followed by a cool result is much more dangerous
than somebody saying it and then walking into a combine harvester.
