It works at the cost of security. How do you know that noone will figure out 
those views? And how do you know that they are properly secured, if you never 
test them standalone? This might not be too problematic for a single project, 
but would you like to install a package and suddenly get all those views that 
you do not know whether they are properly secured and may reveal sensitive 
information? I can tell you that some of my clients do care about this!
