I didn't know about Jai, it looks nice! Especially the automatic structure-of-arrays. But I have to disagree with that philosophy for any large project:Programmers do make mistakes and cause crashes, perhaps even serious ones, but the argument is that the increase in productivity and reduction of friction when memory-safe mechanisms are absent more than make up for the time lost in tracking down errors, especially when good programmers tend to produce relatively few errors.
