It still means that the next time someone "dies" in the universe, it will lack as much drama as it could have had.
I think that will only be the case if it A) Happens all the time, and B) is treated like it's no big deal. If it only happens once (which it only has so far) and is treated like a HUGE deal (which I'm sure it will be for all of the reasons I stated above) then I think we'll be fine.

The world does not work the way you think it does:
