Should the safety briefing be changed?

Calling for a Darwin award for someone in an unexpected situation not of their making who tries but fails to follow safety instructions is more than harsh.
Given that there were NO reports of incapacitations or fatalities caused by the incorrect wearing of the O2 masks, maybe it's time to just let it go.
