Right on! I totally agree with you. A couple of questions for you...and others can chime in
  1. When do can you say they're familiar with it? When two or three out there has heard it? When you've been singing it for a year or so at non-contest dances?
  2. What happens when these dancers don't travel to non-contest dances? Hmmm...no way around that one it seems. Someone gonna be aggitated I guess.
  3. What if your song is a general song with no tricks/sudden stops? Wouldn't it be fair/safe to say that a dancer should be able to pick up a basic song by the end of 4 pushes?
  4. How many times have you all got out there to put a few steps together and find the song something you've never heard before? Was it because it was so old and obscure? Or was it something the drum put together for you?

Just playing "Devils Advocate" here. I'm sure other people can think of other scenarios that could easily fit here. Feel free to throw them out here as well.
