One could argue that this would give your customers a false sense of
security. Better to tell them the truth and make them secure the filesystem
against data-theft etc, than that they do not take enough security measures
'because our consultant told us the files were secure'.

BTW: This applies to all database systems: access to the files == access
to the data. The only variable is the amount of effort required.
