It's just as good or bad as installing it as a global extensions. It's 
also in a place inside the TYPO3 sources.

The only side effect you have is that you can overwrite a system 
extension which was shipped with the original sources.

Both global and system are initially disabled in the Install Tool. If 
someone likes to enable them, he/she probably knows what they're doing.
If you're an admin you could also easily remove a sysext via the file 
system and install an alternative.

To me it's an extremely low priority issue.
