My question is, and point being, how often do you crash with your hands on the rearsets or that area?

what are you using to make the cut? BTW are the sprocket covers metal or plastic? I never really paid attention to mine.

Some are plastic, some are metal. Many are plastic these days unless it has a hydraulic clutch.

And "Diabloman", the reason people are mentioning it is because while yes the rear sprocket is mostly exposed, it's almost impossible to enclose it to make it "safer". While you may not "imagine" what the big deal is, having another exposed sprocket and chain is going to be another potential hazard. That is what everyone is commenting about.
