Actually the reason that my AI design tools do include a sort of  'flight
recorder' is the opposite of what is being discussed here: It is catch how
unusually clever/ good things happened to evolve in the design. You may want
to retrace how come the thing is working better than expected - to be able
to duplicate it.

In some sense, most of what we're avoiding is the sheer anxiety of
working with an AI whose earliest moments are lost.  If, after the
initial stages, we think of even one thing we missed - no matter how
unlikely - and we haven't recorded the AI's development, then we must
either be extremely nervous, or start all over from scratch....
