    Almost every attribute can be dangerous if set incorrectly. Bot it is
    really no problem - simply let's turn to fat12 as root filesystem, and
    no attribute will be dangerous any more... See that acl-s also are not
    used for every file, only for some files, ones of thousands files in the
    filesystem. They are not set and reset every ten minutes - they are set
    one time and used, used and used. The same applies to nice attribute. Is
    it dangerous to not modify attribute all the time? And why restricted
    access is riskfull and evil? If restriction of sccess makes system more
    vurnable to attacks, maybe the good solution will be to set 755
    attributes on enery inode (expecially /etc/shadow) - then everyone will
    be able to do everything and system as whole will be more secure...

    I really don't catch your mind.

    May the Source be with you.
