Faux baptism

Most churches recognize death-bed situations and do not require baptism because the believer is incapable of baptism, church membership, Lord's table, continuing in the apostle's doctrine and other elements that would normally follow. Some churches insert a "faux baptism" for not-quite-death-bed situations in which they insert some other ceremony and claim the person is being baptized. Might it not be better to simply not require baptism if it really literally is not possible -- rather than making up something and calling it baptism?

2 Corinthians 8:12 "For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not."
