Why not? Don't forget that for Christians the question of how to 
vocalize the Tetragrammaton
was not that crucial. The name Jesus is pronounced in various ways 
depending on the language
and no one tries to standardize it or to evoke the original 
pronunciation. To cut it short, they
might have said 'thanks for letting us know' out of mere indifference.
