That's asinine. I want to believe that you're saying it out of respect for the dead, recognizing that they died there specifically for a reason, etc. But is exhuming bodies that are a few hundred years old for examination, with the unlikely expectation of identification, and (presumably?) later reburial more respectful than than, you know, actually letting them rest in peace? All because of a western concept of what a "proper burial" is defined as?
