Every one of them knows where the door is...
There is absolutely no reason that ground-based conductors won't work for the vast majority of movements that do not require switching. Sure, there will be some added delay when a conductor isn't on site "immediately" to fix that broken knuckle. So what?
Those types of issues occur very infrequently on through movements and it's a waste of resources to have a rider along for such low probability events.
