Skinning toolkits are pretty harmless. You are just refitting graphical panels and fonts in the manner you see fit. There isn't really any way to exploit anything.

Its when you start opening up hooks to different parts of the interface with MODS when it gets messy. A Mod is an actual function that is loaded in addition to the UI interface. Reskinning is just spending a lot of time in Photoshop to make things look the way you want.

Honestly, I wonder if it was a legal reason not to allow skinning or to have the UI resemble the LCARs interface. It does not make any sense not to have it.
