No, it is not security. Many hooks will expect a fully loaded BE 
environment. As a result data can become corrupted in places where you 
do not expect it.

Some do, many will not. If you want to risk, you can do it. I would 
never do it because it is not what should be done. TCEmain is not for 
FE. I have no way to stop you from doing this but if you want a good 
advice: do not use TCEmain in FE. That's all I can say.
