Those were the immediately obvious reasons why it didn't work.  But there was also discussion about the problems that could arise because the forwardee was being returned to various places that might also have problems.  And even if they didn't at the time, there was concern over the fragility that would result, as those places using the "copied" object would need to always be careful about touching the contents of the object.
