I can think of one very good reason for disclosure now.
Loss of confidance in government.
If ET disclosure happens via "wild card", be it accidental or deliberate, the people could loose confidance in the world governments. If they feel like they have been lied to for the past 60+ years, it may so anger the people that a planet wide civil war beeaks out. If this was the case, no government could preveil. There would be universal chaos, and the damage to culture, society, and technology could set mankind back to the stone age.
Governments should think about this, for the more time that passes without controlled disclosure, the better the probability for a "Wild card".
I see your point locster, but think of it this way....after a grand disclosure you really think people will be worried about lawsuits and such??? that would be a huge paradigm shift for the entire world, i would think people would be more concerned about shifting their consciousness and other alien self help tips

What would actually be disclosed? Is it plausible that maybe all the ufo's are just man-made secret craft?
