Depending on how concerned you are about security, you can still use AuthZ
and get good security even with this setting. Let's say there was a
commit of stuff (by someone else) in multiple projects, some of which you
do not have authority to via the AuthZ settings. Without this setting, if
you ran svn log, it would omit from the log the files that were changed in
projects you are not authorized to. With this setting, that extra
checking is not performed and svn log would show you that those files were
changed. Personally, this does not concern me.

However, with this setting, you still cannot directly access the stuff you
are not authorized to access, such as commit or checkout. So it is not
that bad to have this setting in effect.
