It also gives you a chance to make things worse by continuing to write to the
device. If you force it RO at the first sign of trouble, maybe you lose a few
blocks of one file. If you keep writing to it, creating new files, erasing
files, and so on, pretty soon your corrupted filesystem is even more corrupted.

And what user benefit does that give? If you keep going, they won't
realize their device is corrupted, and won't have any reason to *fix* the
filesystem.
