Not quite true, if windows crashes, u may surpase the Ubuntu re-install, and
only re-install wubi, so not a big problem if you take care from the first
time installation.
Here is only what they have to know, wubi is for demo and not encouraged at
all to use it more than 6 months, the user must take decision within this
time period!

I'm 90% with u guys, willing to help in installation :)
