Yeah, and I think the best reason for the aversion to uncroaking and decrypting is that it challenges the belief of the City of Heroes. Shouldn't Ossomer actually be having tea with the titans, instead of being brought back to life? The fact that he appeared to have no sense of existing between croaking and decryption doesn't help this theory. That being the case, any action that presents this uncomfortable discrepancy would be avoided at all costs.
Although having said that, IIRC the wiki suggests that a unit doesn't enter the COH until night, when all turns have ended for that day. I think this is based on a line from Vinny... so its not like it blows the COH belief out of the water.

Most certainly, but if you were in a situation where you really HAD to kill Wanda to have any reasonable chance of survival, and you knew that getting yourself decrypted was a great way to get within striking distance, and you knew that it was at least possible to change back (seemingly) based on previous loyalties and/or ideas of nobility, and
you were resolute that Royal units were made of tougher moral stuff than your non-royals... I'd at least be discussing the pros and cons.
