Hell, I'd believe Dzur Mountain having automatic defenses itself.  I've always
thought of it a bit as the Jenoine NORAD/Cheyenne Mountain, taken over by

I favor the "Sethra can't leave Dzur Mountain for long but can nip out"
explanation.  Consider that she can probably teleport in in the case of an
attack -- but if she's in the Paths she probably can't teleport out.

Aliera's skills being wanted for further defense is an interesting explanation
of the alleged urgency.
