And a reminder of what happens because of that:

If you want to write a nice little dialer and do it the right way,
you have to write your own daemon that runs on a dedicated server.
Little hacks like SnapDialer are indeed security holes (if you allow
them to be used). If there were proper authorization through the manager
interface, such dialers could have been safe.

I suspect that the same would apply to any interface you want to expose.
