I would ask you to emphasize the fact that with your solution I guess anybody can open the list in explorer view and read any documents just as before. So even though this solution makes it in some cases more difficult for users to read items this is not a comprehensive solution.

You are correct - this surfaces the "only their own" flag for Document Libraries that was originally only available for Lists, and the exact same permissions / security issues (as you have described) exist for Document Libraries as for Lists when using this flag.

I have updated the description on the home page to add a warning at the top so that people using this setting are aware of the implications.  Good idea.

Thanks for the note,
