Trouble is that some crags (e.g. South Central) already have bolts every 1-1.5m, yet it's still possible to deck from near the top of the route due to shutting down while trying to make a really desperate clip in a strenuous position.

I'm not sure there are many instances where retrobolting could fix this. Good belaying, however, is paramount.
