A buddy can provide an additional air source in the event of an OOA;
And if he/she has the same depleted tank(s)?

A buddy can provide a calm head in an emergency;
How can you guarantee the head of another diver will be calm?

A buddy can help free a diver from a gill-net and/or entrapment;
That's what a knife's for.

A buddy can offer assistance in a narc'd and/or toxing situation;
Self-reliant divers don't dive to those depths.

A buddy can help locate a guideline on a OE silt out;
I thought you DIR dudes didn't use guidelines.
