Didn't tDG think that starting a war and conscripting Teckla would 
end the budding revolution?

I remember someone (possibly Vlad) arguing that it was too early in 
the cycle for the Teckla to be on the winning side of a revolution 
anyway.  Maybe tDG was concerned over too many needless 
deaths. (It could happen.)
