If I could not re-seat the tire I would add a tube. I cannot imagine the tire would unseat anyway ... that is one of the supposed "tubeless advantages," that if it goes flat it doesn't come off. But if it did .... that much easier to sling a tube in there.

With a tube there is no issue of "re-seating" because there is no issue of re-sealing .... the tube takes the pressure, the tire works like any other tire ... unless you have the high-tech hookless rims .... then ... break out the phone.
