One other reason you may wish to set this value to yes is if you name your DITA files using characters that are valid but that the DITA OT will choke on (Windows only prohibits a small set of characters from being used in file names).

The DITA OT is happy with a-z, A-Z, 0-9, some basic punctuation marks, hyphens, underscore and other characters, but if you choose file names that use other characters (such as those used in Greek, Russian, Thai, Chinese, etc…) the DITA OT may have issues producing output.

Our Japanese localized version of XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0 ships with the setting cmd_fs_sandboxing=yes for this reason (because most people in Japan will use Japanese file names and that will break the DITA OT).
