Multiviews also opens an ASP-style hole for people who use 
ScriptAlias instead of some kind of Location or File block 
and SetHandler to denote script directories, eg 

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin /web/cgi-bin

with multiviews lets you call cgi-bin/script.cgi as 
cgi-bin/script and get the source returned instead of 
executing the script, which would probably be unexpected.
