Of course, this practice is not the end of the world, by any means... On the other hand, I wouldn't characterize it as "nothing", either...

Many of us here sail Good Old Boats, or might be in the market for one... One of the most common problems with such boats, is penetration/saturation of the deck core... And, I would guess, that one of the most common contributors to that issue, is the abuse of lifelines, and the working of stanchion bases against the deck that is created by stress from fenders, or pulling one's body weight against stanchions when boarding from a dock, or dinghy, and so on...
