But it's the same as setting your wifi to be open and setting it to repeat any connections from any other router in the area.

The potential for hacking/disruption is large, place a rogue device in the matrix of phones and you could cause loss of service for people

I dunno, maybe people would like to do that? there's always some disruptive people out there, see the recent case of GPS/RDS hacking where people could inject false traffic information.
