    Nope, I don't agree... Enabling that fuction should not cause half of the fantastico scripts would stop working under normal circumstances.

    However, many hosts will disable certain php functions, such as exec(), to make their hosting environment more secure, as you can accomplish quite a few things with exec() on a box that is poorly secured.

    Anyway, just my two cents.
