This kind of assertion is frequently made, but never demonstrated with 
anything other than theory or anecdotes, the latter usually second-hand. 
  Fear of the hypothetical is an excuse for paralysis.  And it's always 
applied inconsistently.

Also it's premise is that the actual content of the document doesn't 
matter very much, since a it means that the presence of caveats will 
have no effect.
