Sure. I have no doubt the main reasons to keep youtube are.

a) data mining 
b) contingency

B) is essentially having the most popular platform, in case if video
platform becomes viable marketing platform on itself.

Data mining aspect might make it less dubious to sink network cost to
different BU than to the BU which actually uses the network, as that
network is also benefitting from the data.
