For us it was - we had (and still have) nodes spontaneously rebooting.
If they come up into idle, they will eat the next job, etc as infinitum -
thus we've set ReturnToService=0.
"Black hole" in a figurative way, still swallowing all it could get its hands on.
You've got to decide what's worse: have full control over machines rebooted
intentionally, or have full control over misbehaving ones. My own choice is clear.
