I think risky play is good. Certainly, some supervision is necessary depending on age and situation but I think it's also important to let them be.
I can't really say where I'd draw the line; each situation would depend on a number of things. When I look at our parenting, compared to others we know, I think our son (DD's only three months old) is allowed to do a lot more things that I imagine others would call risky.
I grew up on a farm and was encouraged to do all kinds of fun stuff that alot of other kids I knew never got to...I imagine that has quite a bit to do with my very eclectic taste in the things I enjoy.
I really hope my kids grow up with a try anything once kind of attitude too.
