Didn't something like that actually happen with an F-15? Pilot landed, no ejection.
Somewhat related, Rockwell Collins and DARPA are working on software that allows a UAV to automatically redefine it's flight envelope after structural failure due to battle damage. Pretty cool stuff.
I'd rather have a pilot up front that has the superior judgment to never get into a situation where the aircraft would lose a flight control surface.There goes the final argument about needing pilots in the cockpit to handle emergencies...
