“What-ifs” are problematic because those who posit them often don’t see the whole cost.
Are you willing to make the missile heavier so you can throw it harder, thus compromising range and agility? Beef up the throwing mechanism and reduce range and payload of the aircraft? Mount externally and compromise your low observable properties? All for the one in a million situation where you’ve already messed up a dozen times.
