No, it costs a lot of time and money to fix even one issue.
We don't want to waste it on something that isn't exploitable.
There are at least four problems with this argument. First, the
argument basically says "defective software is OK."

You've interpreted "don't want to waste it" as "won't fix it",
extended it to suggest that it's an acceptable response, and then
proceeded to attack that conclusion.

No, but you might get someone in eventually to clean the soot from the ceiling.
