At the end of the day MH17 isn't an air safety issue at all to the extent that we know that there was nothing wrong with the aircraft so the issue with regards to the black box is irrelevant.

Boeing 777s are not designed with missile attacks in mind.

Another thought. If the plane did crash into the Indian Ocean then in theory, every day that goes by ought to widen the debris field - that should help somewhat.
