Ummm. ISTR public statements saying _exactly this_, though perhaps
with less technical detail. Everyone was blinded by the "OMG MS!"
effect that nobody actually applied neurons to the situation.

Around that time, I spoke in various public events and relayed exactly
that message. Some people understood the intent.

That you don't know doesn't mean it hasn't been discussed...
