This is exactly how I feel about it. Anemones sometimes stay put for ages and once the other corals really grow in they can get unsettled and go on a raid. The danger sometimes comes only after the tank matures and gets crowded. I admire people with the balls to keep them in a reef. I just never have the budget to chance it. When a reef gets overcrowded it's time to make extra money selling frags. When the nem runs short on room it sometimes goes on a rampage.
They're gorgeous though. I don't put lion fish in my tank... just in case. I shy from nems for the same reason. Beautiful but deadly is cool, but it's unnerving.
