Actually, (and Al can correct me if I'm wrong) I believe the position was it has worked in the past, therefore it is worth at least giving it a chance to happen in the present, instead of simply assuming that it cannot work.

Isn't that exactly the point? Of course it's "what ifs", we never tried it, so we obviously cannot make concrete statements on the results. Merely point out that we never even tried, though it is the more moral path to take.
