You are conveniently ignoring the fact that in the vast majority of
cases what InnoDB checksums will catch is silent disk corruption
rather than database internals corruption.
So the one narrow edge case you are clinging to as the full
justification of your abusive behaviour and delusions of grandeur are
a tiny fraction of a percent of the errors that will cause InnoDB
checksums to fail - and outside that narrow edge case all of the rest
of them will be caught and handled better at layers below the database
So either you are arguing in bad faith, or you really are extensively
ignorant of typical failure patterns.
