I don't even see why the bootflag is a problem per se - I can run ML or not depending on what I want to do.

The one and only problem I am aware of is that it adds a second or so to the startup time of the camera before you can start shooting. That's long enough that I sometimes find it an issue if I need to shoot in a hurry. Removing the SD card completely speeds things up a little but it's still slower than with the bootflag disabled.

As far as I'm concerned that's a pretty minor price to pay for all the additional functionality ML provides but I'm sure some people will feel otherwise.
