It is, please send the list of variables that you have issues with.
If such variables are defined in emacs itself, then the policy is to
determine what type of arguments are safe for the variables. If the
variables are defined in a package, then it is that package's duty to
mark them as safe.  
The above is the current policy.

Unless you show that the policy is somehow wrong, you'd have trouble
convincing people to change it (which is what you propose).

One way to try to show that the current state of affairs is wrong is to
show actual example where this happens.

Just my 2 cents.
