So cloud can't exist OCTA? Or do we only need ATC when it's cloudy? Maybe CTA to the ground everywhere, just in case it's cloudy somewhere? How many thousands of times in Australia has an IFR...

When you've got these types of thought police given free reign, there are no mistakes. It's not in their interest. There will only ever be the guilty. Their KPI's (and job) depend on it.
