The haut regard everything as guinea pigs for genetic experimentation including themselves. But they are never shown tossing the ba away like tissue paper by marching them over minefields or working them on building pyramids until they die or throwing away their brains when they reach majority to gain a new body. So it depends on what you mean by expendable. As honeybees defend their hive by being kamikazes I assumed something along that line when eusociability was discussed.
