Is there something about a bacterial membrane that makes it unstable when bent as sharply as a vesicle (or NC) requires? The NC doesn't need for it to remain whole for long.

As an aside, how does the virion construct its outermost membrane? De novo, or by pinching off a bit of the host? If the former, could this be the fabled membranosynthesis of song and Talmudic query?
