* They haven't been proven.  It won't be proven until people start being
uploaded (or "coalesced", or whatever you choose to term it) and this is
observed to work.  Until then, there is always room for the theory to be
missing something.

* They won't save my ass today.  Maybe some decades from now, if they work
- and if they can be made to work in time for me.  They didn't come soon
enough for many who came before us; if this won't work before I need it,
then I have no incentive to invest in it.
