Sure.  Accessing/updating a GnuCash "file" in such a low level way can
be even more dangerous than modifying a XML file with a text editor; a
wrong SQL query can mess up the database(s) and make it(them) unusable
by GnuCash itself.
Read access only should be safe however...

I was thinking that reports in HTML could be easier to build or
customize (??), allow to quickly check results without the need to
open GnuCash, could be integrated with something else for automatization
(like sending the results by email), ...
