One probably could. More often than not it seems that the mechanism used to provide protection against hardware failure becomes more fragile than the hardware you're protecting.

I've seen this for T1 circuits but I can't find anything for DS3.
Can the relay and associated hardware, cables, power supply and logic be guaranteed to be substantially more reliable than the router? If not, why bother?
Sometimes all of your eggs in one basket is the most sensible choice as long as you have a stainless steel basket.
