I'm finding it difficult to continue taking seriously anyone who
believes that "crash and reboot" is a suitable response to anything
I have implemented embedded systems, they most certainly did dynamic
memory allocation (no way to fit in available memory resources if
everything was pre-allocated) and "panic and reboot" is not something
I would consider as a satisfactory tactic.
