Not at all... it just means that backup power is necessary for a reliable system. Disk drive designers have learned not to pretend they can make a whole system reliable all by themselves, and that (furthermore) the market won't pay for them to try. It doesn't take much backup power; if you can get the CPU's or ATA interface's power to drop out of tolerance a few seconds before the drive's, that may be all you need.
