except that when they bubble 'backwards' you are pulling unsanitary air into your fermenter...

I am totally splitting hairs and would never actually worry about that.

I think that happens when any airlock sucks back (I guess not with blowoff tubes though). But I guess "eliminate" is too strong a word. Might just maybe eliminate some contamination risk possibly sorta.
