Overall I agree, but we all know how really bizarre things can happen.
A branch getting knocked up and damaging the turbo's oil return line enough to block it could lead to a runaway. When the oil pressure builds up in the bearing housing the most likely place for it to go is past the bearing in the compressor and in to the inlet manifold.
