Why is BODS 3.2 Custom Dictionary Encrypted?


I assume that the SAP-delivered dictionary PERSON_FIRM_EN is encrypted due to SAP considering it proprietary and not wanting users to extract/download the entries.

However, I don't understand why custom dictionaries created by the user needs to be encrypted? Wouldn't it be useful to allow non-DS access to DS custom dictionaries, thereby having the dictionary in a central place (DS) but allowing other non-DS applications access to the dictionary table data?

Maybe I'm missing something here and other users can provide feedback.
