One of the main benefits of behaviors, from the docs:

"The button containing the behavior script can be located anywhere. In
particular this allows for it be located in a password protected stack,
allowing you to protect the script without need to protect the controls
using it."

It would seem using behaviors is more secure than temporarily removing
security from a stack.
