I see all your arguments
My initial idea was that I guess there are many SOTA activists who do skitouring (on furs) or snow shoe tours. For them, such a tandem-scheme would give an incentive to do a skitouring summit in summer or a summer summit as a ski tour in winter.
Of course, winter mountaineering can be more challenging than summer mountaineering, but at least in the Alps, there are summits that are easier on skis in winter than to be climbed in summer.
Anyway, I buy your points and definitely did not want to put anybody in danger.
