Well, we considered it so or we wouldn't have added it as a new standard back in 1994. Disc like the Destroyer weren't even a consideration back in 1994, but Discraft's Eclipse, then the sharpest disc, was. And the Flazer that was even much sharper and stiffer was a real consideration for safety concerns. If you're interested, give me your email address and I can send you the 1994 article I wrote for the PDGA's Disc Golfer on the rim configuration and flex tests here, as it doesn't look like I can attach pdf files here.
