I still think they aren't a problem for MitD, though, if a proposal happens to need a silver tuning fork to explain the escape (as long as something inherent to MitD is also needed).

True, they also show divine focuses being used a lot.

I don't think that components are a problem either really, though none of the likely spells (Miracle, Wish, Teleport, Greater Teleport are the ones that come to mind) have material components or foci anyways (Plane Shift seems a bit inadequate, but I could buy it).
