You don't expose them really to any additional risks by default. If the 
delta rpms are already mirrored, yum just ignores them without the 
plugin. Since the plugin is already in Fedora Extras users just would 
have install them explicitly to use the delta rpms.  The plugin falls 
back to downloading the full rpm if the delta rpm fails or is not
