they ONLY time i have ever seen a run away plank was when someone fell over whilst carrying it; in which case a leash wouldn't have been in use anyways.
the idea of the leash was born from ignorance and its suggestion of being 'necessary' is perpetuated by skiers!
point is, when riding your average hill it serves no purpose. when off piste; being more vulnerable to avalanche, it creates a problem, because if a slab lets go, you need to get rid of your board and a leash is just another thing to have to undo to try save your life.
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
