A stable clear headed dog is not any more likely to bite indiscriminately than a Martial Arts expert is likely to go around attacking harmless strangers walking down the street - if anything, the bite-training makes dogs more discriminating at separating threat and non-threat.
I've been doing SchH/IPO with Gryff, and just did a protection seminar where he was pushed with real threat from the decoy, worked on the bite suit and the hidden sleeve. A whole weekend of working him hard, trying to push him to his limits, and he is still the exact same easy-going, friendly dog that he always was.
I can take him anywhere, he sees people and he thinks "Pets and attention, YES!", and don't have any worries about an inappropriate response.
If (knowlegeable and correct) bite training makes a dog likely to bite innocent people for no reason, then the dog did not have the correct temperament to undertake this training in the first place.
