I certainly learned the Ampex engineer's equivalent of that when I asked him how the transport would protect the tape in the case of a power cut during spooling on his prototype DCT machine, and then promptly pulled the power lead out of the back. Result: much loose tape filled the inside of the transport and there was much swearing. Point made though.  :P
