Absolutely. We saw just that with WannaCry: break the chain, the attack fails. OK, some links are better to break than others, but whatever chain-link stops the payload is arguably the best link.
VS already has the capability without compromising the system, so yes we need to be ultra-careful about adding extra stuff. My own preference — and actions — would be to light up a known performer like EEK or ZAM to have a shufti and do what they do best.
