It's not.

Crash is a kind of limit and very efficient at that, isn't it?

You asked a technical question and received more than one valid answer to it
in very short time. Thus your problem is solved and this discussion is over.
Whether you accept the underlying reasoning or not on a personal level is
irrelevant, unless you can show the thing that disturbs you is an actual
engineering problem.

Have a nice evening,
