Yeah, sure. One could also make the analogy that it is impossible in this day and age to recover the brain from say a victim of a car smash and get it uploaded. Well before being able to handle emergencies, lots of commitment will be needed to change the status quo in order for practice to make perfect. David Brin's 'transparent society' is one such change that will be needed to knock the nay sayers off their perch.
