That's not really a problem; its open source so we can never hide it anyway.
Its about you being able to shoot yourself in the foot by doing something that 
the API obviously does not allow and is not supported in anyway.

If you go through lengths to find a gun and point it to a foot that's clearly 
marked as "Don't point anything here!". Well, that's your problem.
