Disabling of the protection system also appears to have been the cause of the train crash at Bad Aibling earlier this year:

Perhaps it's better to let the machines run things?

I see that we have two types of critical systems :
* Systems that are designed with a human as the ultimate layer of protection: cars, planes

If there is a material possibility to inhibit or disengage the last ones, there is almost nothing guarantying that this will never happen, intentionally or not...
