The real risk is that the slide would move enough to go out of alignment and not seal properly. Not good, but not catastrophic.
Their are lots of things that happen and you don't hear of it, Lots of different things in life have safety equipment and you never hear of what it did prevent or if anything did happen because safety equipment was not used. If locks are given and a place to install then I am going to use them. What your saying is pure bull gee I never had a fire in my house so why should I have smoke detectors in it? what your saying may let someone think well he is right so I am not going to use mine and then something happens,so if you choose to not use them so be it

On our 08 Roo 21SS there were stickers on the outside wall to show where the travel locks should be positioned. On the edge of the fascia where the seal was there were indentations where the locks were positioned. These roughly corresponded to the stickers on the outer wall. We always used ours because of how heavy the slide is. You have to feel with your hand where the indentation is.

We used them this last trip and glad to say they never came out. Stayed in place with no problem. The string with the little orange warning signs are there for a reason. Do not cut them off the bar and make sure to hang them over the top of the slide. That way you won't forget their there. Almost forgot ours and started to open the slide, but realized they were on and stopped in time not to cause any damage.

Awhile back someone suggested laminating the orange tags on them to help 'em last longer. Not a bad idea...

Put a little hook screw above the slideout button and loop the tag in the hook. The slide won't be opened unless the button is pressed, right?. You'll see the tag before you "accidentally" forget about the slide locks.

Using the slide locks will (should) keep the top of slide in when travelling on rough roads or during unforeseen events.....

That is a good idea too. Energy lockout so to speak. Good for the ones who don't have the tags still.
