short reply:

if userspace can break your filesystem, there is a bug in your filesystem,

This should never under any circumstance happen, there should be as much
protection as possible against it.
Same goes for a binary that gets you root access when specifying a bad
parameter, it's a root exploit and should be fixed, it's a bug...

Just my 2 cents,
