Sure? no. AFAIK we have no way to create our own [safe]critical code on
MS platform to test such scenarios. 

OTOH I don't see any problem to reduce checks for critical code if (or
when) our code base needs/requires it. But right now it's far easier to
spot a "wrong failure" than a "wrong success", so I prefer disallowing
until needed.
