There's no point wasting development resources on threats that may  
never emerge. If attacks become a problem, it can be dealt with then  
-- when more information on the nature of the threat is available, so  
a better solution can be developed than now (when there is no  
information, only speculation).

We're not talking about an airline control system here, where waste is  
more than acceptable if it trivially reduces risk.
