[Greasemonkey] GM_xmlhttpRequest and localhost

On a previous thread, it was pointed out that if GM_xmlhttpRequest is
not going to allow access to file:// then it should not allow access
to http://localhost either.

I'm not sure I agree. Lots of useful Greasemonkey scripts could be
written that access the private network, including localhost. Can
somebody expand more on why this is a concern?
