Because they are thrwon about a lot more than in most BB/Db workouts, there is always the added danger of injury through misjudging or mistiming a catch against a forearm or around the body etc. Breakages of bones have been known to happen even with the best form; though that can happen with barbells as well, during heavy olympic lifts etc.
For most that employ KBs to any degree in a workout, there tends to be a preference for wanting to use them as an added training tool and they're certainly a fun element, even at the higher weights.
Front squats work well with KBs etc, probably a lot easier than a barbell front squat; take 2 x 16kg or 20kg KBs and you soon have yourself a workout, but the issues is cleaning them first which is a lot more complex; whereas a barbell is normally set on a rack and easier to get in to the intitial position for the exercise, such as the front squat.

I agree that they are a fun element to add to your workout. I do not use them all the time. I just do them when I need a change or when I am bored. Again I think that it is a personal preferrence.

I use them for the conditioning phase of my training. They will give you an awesome lower back pump:-)
