Yes, it would, but can we live with the fact that they are still selling the relatively unsafe version in the meantime?

The scenario is completely different if we consider the models being exported from here. For at least these models, Maruti should replace the Indian version, especially the body shell.
Indeed. As you say, forum members here are supposed to be among the better informed, but I can't count myself there: It is nearly four years since I got rid of my Swift, and it still stings that I had no idea that, structurally, it was any different to a European Swift.

I really liked driving that car. I was disappointed enough to have had so much trouble with rusting (like 1950s in UK!) but then I was left feeling cheated from the start.
