Besides the scalibilty issues, it's a good idea to not allow access to the
central manaer. By default, Condor gives HOSTALLOW_ADMINISTRATOR access to 
the central manager. If you're letting people submit from the central manager, 
you're basically giving them administrator access to the pool. 

If you're using stronger authentication, then this isn't an issue.
