No pros, lots of cons. 

Does he also like to see raw database files instead of using a database
client? No. Does he also like to see raw hex dumps of file systems? No. 
Does he also like to see TCP/IP packets as they fly by? No. 

It's a repository, with nothing useful from a human-readable standpoint. If
anybody tries editing stuff, thet's a one-way ticket to Disaster Street. 

> Is this a good idea?

Definately not.

The mass of men serve the state thus, not as men mainly, but as machines,
with their bodies... they put themselves on a level with wood and earth and
stones; and wooden men can perhaps be manufactured that will serve the
purpose as well.
