I am okay with sending a Purple DOFF on a mission I know has a possibility that they will be destroyed. I can choose whether or not to assume the risk.
I simply don't think that it is a good idea to make that possibility a regular, random thing. I think I have four purples in all, and I'd hate to lose any of them. One was a T4 diplomacy reward, one was a defection, one was from the temporal anomaly mission, and the last was the vorta reward from 'The 2800'.
I'd scream bloody-murder if I lost one on a routine assignment.
Now, if an assignment says something like "Suicide Mission" or "At All Costs" and makes it very clear that the DOFF I send is likely not to make it back... I won't be surprised if they don't. And ecstatic if they survive it. The rewards for such a mission, needless to say, ought to surpass any that went before it.
