This is basically the idea behind the Specialized Zertz that you saw on pre-future shock Roubaix and Diverges. Not sure it was all that successful since they dropped them completely.

Anything can break mid ride
Electric shifting is fast and precise and also allows for shifting under power. Auto trimming is a pretty nice feature also.
