This objection is so obvious, I'm surprised we haven't articulated it
before -- I feel like it's been in the back of my head all this time.  

The only answer I can think of would be if Silk-in-Pig wants to go to his
Silk body more than any of the mainframe versions of Silk.

But in any case, I think Horn's motives are to restore Pig's sight and
allow Silk-in-Pig to get out to wherever he wants to go (like Scylla
wanting out of Oreb -- although note here that Scylla does not go from
Oreb back to Mainframe, but from Oreb to her original body -- so maybe
that analogy supports mantis's theory after all!)
