I think security will not be a problem, first it will be used in an 
intranet and second, if you got the chance to change a page manually by 
  editing it, you can do this also by link. So I'll check, if the user 
has write permission (and maybe add some javascript-alertbox to ask the 
user if he will really change the value).
I thought the function would be nice as a button to switch a 
status-field of a page etc within a pagelist-view.

that's a good thing to start, I think.
