[icinga-users] illegal_object_name_chars option

I know, that I can use "illegal_object_name_chars" option in icinga.cfg 
and I have there: "`~!$%^&*|'"<>?,()=". It's the default value.
But the question for me is why shouldn't I just to leave this option 
blank? Why should I restrict the short name of the host name or service 
The documentation says "When used properly, the $HOSTNAME$ macro will 
contain this short name.". What means the "properly"?

Best regards
