Not really ... the plan that's presented is the one that looked the
cheapest out of the feasible plans.  How are you going to identify a
single reason as to why any other plan was not generated or lost out
on a cost-estimate basis?  Humans might be able to do so (note that
the above quote is an off-the-cuff estimate, not something I'd care
to defend rigorously) but I don't think software can do it.

FWIW, the particular problem here should be fixed in 7.5.
