If I may add my grain of salt : often the issue is that such error 
messages end up cluttering the logfile, consuming megabytes and making 
it more time-consuming to find real errors that one should track down.
One case in point is the "GET /_vti_bin/.." stuff generated by some IE 
clients.  One knows what they are, one knows that they'll end up being 
rejected, and one is tired of finding them all over.  So one would 
appreciate some nice and efficient way to reject them early on, and not 
even having them logged.
And one knows that this might cause one some time in the future to 
overlook some things one should'nt.
