Nevertheless you found an example that proves that I'm wrong.
Regardless, I still think that abandoning an authorization model
is a Very Bad Idea (TM).

If we publish an API, someone will produce an application that seriously
breaks the core and hijacks channels left and right. It's better to do  
work first, than have to clean up the mess afterwards. We have a very
large installed base out there, and a responsibility not only to help  
them protect
their mission-critical PBX systems, but also integrate security as we  
forward, in order to enable them to use this functionality in their  
and on the Internet.
