Because they cannot attack the tower. The zone between the airspace and the tower would stop all attacks and any acidic battle crap would slide and fall onto the ground below. The only reason the battle crap can hit the garrison is because it is FALLING. Their is no falling exploit between the Airspace and Tower (at least non mentioned) only between the Airspace and the Garrison.
There IS a danger, and they CAN attack the tower using the same mechanic. If there was no danger, Jetstone would not have ordered the yellows away. Trammenis outright states that the Yellows could hit them on the tower.
I'm not saying it's as good as Parson's plan, but it seems a lot simpler and less risky. Depending on how much juice Jack had left.
