In an app on the AppStore this is definitely a security risk from Apple’s point of view. Devs could insert any nefarious code into their app. This has been true from iOS2.  Only content like video and images, maybe some animation data and so on is deemed ok and encouraged. 

I was mainly revering to HTML5 deployment where it is pretty much encouraged to dissect where possible.
