Oh, I entirely agree ... that's why I said that it "sometimes happens" that accidents and/or rough treatment of one's bags can produce bottle-breakage. The specific circumstances I cited are, indeed, unusual. But bottle breakage for various reasons does happen, from time to time. So-long as one accepts that there's a chance that one could have a disaster, then "you pay's your money and you takes your choice."
