    Because it's only setting variables, and not echoing them, it's completely safe, look at my WordPress wp-config.php file for example...

    Are you kidding? A server problem might make this file visible! I have moved mine to a directory below the level accessibible for my visitors and their browsers - safe is safe!
    Does WP store sensitive date in any other files?
