Well, I guess that's the heart of the matter. I don't see much
comparison between "please tick this box" and "supplying a crane". The
point is you're still fighting a battle which is well and truly
finished, and your options are to either tick the box, or to in effect
erase all the hard work you've put in. To take the latter course of
action is both throwing out the baby with the bathwater, and cutting
off your nose to spite your face - since we're being metaphorical and
all that.

(Yes, you may argue that it's not you doing the erasing, it's OSMF,
but the effect is identical.)
