And do you really believe that the lens would perform the same after replacement of that element?

Frankly - no.  An impact strong enough to shatter that kind of glass is bound to cause all sorts of internal damage as well, wreaking havoc on focusing assembly, IS, zoom mechanism and whatever else.   Which is why it is usually better to bite the bullet and send the lens to manufacturer for complete evaluation and repair than to try to find a part online and do a DIY.
