Moving to host networking would reduce our ability to do zero downtime upgrades in the future. It means you must kill the old container in order to start the new one, rather than allowing for the possibility to remap the network configuration in iptables. It's something we don't have now, but we may be able to do in the future.
With regards to security issues, we have some more restrictive firewall rules in place now. I don't think this is a major issue. I don't think it makes a huge difference in performance to switch to host networking, but it's worth testing.
