Ok, I admit this qualifies as a little bit paranoid. Why do I want to have, in the wild, the ability of a species to self-terminate: a purposeful genetic dead end. Our understanding of the genome is so complete and its interactions with other species that we have zero risk of this showing up elsewhere and rendering the entire ecosystem null and void? Call me paranoid, but I can't see how the benefits out weight the risks.
