Maybe so, and if they had alt-static they might not have used it, but having one after ascending into the soup would have overcome the single point of failure at preflight. At least they would have to screw up two things to die.

While it is a personal choice, it is not stupid to have an alt-static. Besides if the line is accessible, like my tip up, it can be used for a test port.
