Why? Isn't that obvious? If there is no use case for removing the 
running kernel, well, then there's no reason to let a application do so, 
isn't it?

Allowing something that has no, or a minuscules use case, while at the 
same time might create huge problems for non technically oriented user, 
is, in my opinion, really bad.

Me? For me personally it dose not matter. The reason I debate this is to 
help the unsuspecting ordinary non technical users from debunking their 
systems. The user perspective is good to have sometimes, you know.
