I apologize for citing a lack of your experience. Which marine publication do you work for. Have you ever posted these thoughts in it? Why don't you do that. I would be interested in how many offshore sailors think that having a life raft and EPIRB means they are more likely to abandon in a scary situation. Maybe I am in a minority and that's the "real" reason they have them, a false sense of security.
