This isn't a good idea because It will change strategy to encourage slowplay for hard goals. This is also a rejection of the precedent set by the speedrun race and randomizer race community that this idea has been borrowed from. If there's 1 thing that's less interesting than watching pinball it has to be watching a pinball machine in attract mode.
These guys aren't flying out to Vegas to try to win a NIB Aerosmith Game! They're just lazily turning on a pinball stream!
Also, I would like to think that the commentary team will be quick-witted enough to explain these sorts of situations. It will never be a "this helps" situation. It will also never get you any closer to achieving the goal, since the only result of restarting is losing all game progress.
This doesn't make any sense. Look at the goals in post 94 and tell me what you think, but these are the goals that I'm practicing for. There is no objective on that list where restarting HELPS the player achieve the goal faster than ideal play. There is a calculated risk where they player may choose to restart a game (in any manner) to try to make up time lost. Doing this repeatedly would absolutely cause you to lose because you would never achieve the goal.
