The question is, who wants to take the time (and risk) to find out. 
An operator backing out the hybrid answers is risking an outage to 
some reliant parties.  It's not often I'm willing to undertake an 
action whose only potentially noticeable impact is to cause someone 
else to hit my network harder and phone my help desk.

I'm not saying I think backing out hybrids is a bad idea, but, it's 
like "what's the motivation?"  (I ask rhetorically.)
