what's up with modern cockpit designs?

I sail on a traditional schooner so admittedly I'm a little out of touch with most new sailing developments. I was looking at a Sail magazine the other day and all of the new boats featured had enormous aft cockpits with open transoms. While that seems nice and looks fast, doesn't anyone worry about falling overboard!? That's my biggest concern with people on my boat. Does anyone understand the methodology behind these cockpit designs?
