I am not an advocate of the TR. Nevertheless, a textual tradition is more
fluid than your question suggests. While I would not argue for the
Byzanitine tradition in toto, it is "possible that in some instances the
true reading has been lost from the mss. of the other text-types and is
preserved only in the Byzantine text" (Greenlee, J. Harold. Introduction To
New Testament Textual Criticism [Grand Rapids, William B. Eerdmans
Publishing Company, 1964), 91.
