Question Red Dot Failures? BUIS really necessary?

Like me, you probably have backup sights on every optic equipped rifle you own. But I was thinking... I have never seen a MilSpec quality red dot optic fail (EoTech, Aimpoint). I even have an EoTech that spent 2 years on daily patrols in Iraq that is way dented and scratched, but is still is 100% reliable.

I'm beginning to think that backup sights on a carbine that already has a milspec red-dot mounted is money and weight allocation poorly spent, especially on a civilian defense rifle.

Any thoughts on this, or any experiences with failed milspec red-dots? (excluding dead batteries, of course).
