^ as far as that though i couldnt disagree more our coolant systems are eniterly composed of components that run interdependent on one another, belt snaps youre toast, pulley seizes youre toast, water pump fails yore toast, any one component in the system fails it will have catastrophic failure if not instantly pretty damn soon
the cooling system is not like when a timing belt breaks. there is no instant damage or immediate damage.
there were some 5 million E46s made in their run and if when a cooling part broke in any of these according to you each of them would have a catastrophic failure. this is not the case! people turn the engine off in a timely manner when either one of up to three gauges/lights activate allerting the driver to pull over and shut down. or they can see steam or feel the belt not driving the ps.

sure the aluminum head is sensitive when over heated but this is nothing like when a timing belt breaks.
