Then you won't guarantee there won't be unnoticedly downed services
(That's not Nagios, but a general matter: you either follow a
non-false-positive policy or a non-false-negative one; I'd bet the
non-false-negative is the one to follow here, I mean, you'd prefer
having *some* false alerts better than overlook failing hosts).
