Mount data partition with option to ignore owner/permissions

I think Archos wrote a patch to do this and are using it in their Android. This helps them as Android assumes a FAT system behaviour and fails e.g. on such things like 'download' not being writeable by the market process.
If we'd mount the ext3 data partition that way we'd get rid of all those problems too and I think there is no real 'security' concern there is it? (this would not affect ownership/permissions of the rootfs)
