Also note that you stated that 9,999 times out of 10,000 that the IO subsystem was responsible for corruptions. Same type of probabilistic statement - just with a higher level of certainty.
Well that's from Paul, who has a hell of a lot more experience and knowledge in this area, and was based on his time with the dev team and corruptions he's worked on since. I'll take his probabilistic statement as fact. I certainly have no grounds to disagree with his statement.
