Is there anything inherintaly dangerous or wrong about enabling
PasswordAuthentication in sshd_config ?

I understand how public keys are better and everything else. And I do
use them. I'm just curious.

There are many arguments for and against, but /inherintaly/ they are
the same. You are comparing your secret to the secret stored on the
server. Keys just tend to be much longer secrets, and are also more
difficult to change.
