Yes but still, having the ability to overexpose and having no meter at all is not exactly the same thing.
You need years an years of experience to start shooting without a meter and it is still "dangerous".
I want to be sure of my exposures. Not guess and rely on the fact that film is forgiving.
Fair enough, if you're very exacting about your exposure, then meter away. I'm less exacting and fall into the "it looks fine to me" category.
