I witnessed OOA in similar circumstances happily resolved by air share.
And it proves absolutely nothing, just like your sucessful ESA.
There's more than one way to skin the duck (or was it bear? or horse? or iguana?)
Seriously I would rather get a reg to breathe from than risk ESA from say 80 feet. Especially after couple of dives when I'm significantly loaded with nitrogen.
Bottom line: Even if you did 100 ESAs, it's not 100% proof bailout from every situation. With 100 OOA drills done and proper buddy skills, only double equipment failure will get you dead.
