I can't speak for the devs, but that's never stopped me before :p

Speculative code to directly muck with known-to-be-corrupted data
structures is not something that benefits from early releases.  It's
too easy to cause damage that _can't_ be fixed later, and no amount of
warnings will prevent people from trying that code in desperation.

Or would you have taken a full image of your 8 drives before trying it
the first time?
