You know, dead people not being revived on Voya Nui makes even less sense when you consider the Ignika.
Let me explain, back in the day it was revealed that the Ignika could only perform its countdown while inside the MU. Somebody asked Greg why its countdown still activated during the 06/07 story and Greg responded that it still worked because Voya Nui was still part of the MU even if it was outside it, and it worked in the ocean because everybody was literally on top of the robot at that point. So shouldn't the same rules apply to the Red Star?
And let's not forget the Toa-izing beam fail-safe, which was, if I recall correctly, supposed to protect Matoran outside the robot, since they weren't supposed to be there. It seems odd to me that the Red Star could turn Jaller and company into Toa on Voya Nui, but can't revive anyone there.
Back on the subject of Jovan: It occurs to me that if his corpse left Voya Nui, it seems likely it would have wound up in Karda Nui. Now, given the magnitude of the Great Cataclysm, I imagine that the Red Star was probably quite busy teleporting bodies up. And if Jovan's was in the center of the MU, it might take a while to get him. Now, given that Karda Nui was flooded with mutagenic waters, and if his body was indeed in Karda Nui, it seems to me that the mutagenic waters, if they do mutate cadavers (or bits of cadavers, given the fall to the bottom of Karda Nui) might actually get to his body and result in the revived Jovan being somewhat mutated.
Just a thought. I have no idea of whether life is a requirement for mutagen to work. Come to think of it, the dead alternate Tuyet may poke a rather large hole in my idea
