Those who had a close call could use the system to report it without fearing disciplinary action.
I believe that some of the better airlines adopted the system which may or may not still be in use today.
Arguably when semi-autonomous cars get enough telemetry, this is what will happen anyway - the sensors will report back to the manufacturer and the neural networks will learn better pattern recognition. Effectively this is why google are driving around large fleets of [supervised] cars - to collect enough data. And what Tesla is letting their owners do for them. For example I imagine every time Tesla "autopilot" asks for human intervention it will record why it couldn't cope at that point in time.
