Of course you wouldn't do exactly that, but a typo with another command
which has the same effect might happen. That's why an ordinary user
shouldn't be in the "disk" group. And as another effect, someone in the
group "disk" could circumvent all file system permissions. If you really
need raw access to a disk, you should run the command as root.
