The only issue I see and maybe why they'd disable it is so you don't do a crazy join that ends up returning 8 billion rows. But they should be able to manage that with query execution time timeouts or something and you can do the same thing with bad implied inner joins in the WHERE clause anyway.. but maybe it's harder to detect that and block it.
