"unreasonable" is a peculiar word to use here :-)

It's the internet and you can't expect other people not to do silly
things from time to time.  This is a known problem and it isn't even the
first time it's been discussed on nanog-l.

If you've been hit with a known service-affecting problem that can
easily recur without warning and which will be service affecting if it
hits again, common sense suggests that it would be a good idea to
upgrade to a version of code which isn't affected.
