How can you be so sure about it ? There might be scripts/utils you
aren't aware of
and are depending on this..

That's not the only purpose of those frequencies there. It shows list
of all possible
frequencies. Now, there can be issues if those lists are updated.

Suppose somebody just played with the min/max frequency, now how would anybody
come to know about the frequencies available above/below the
user-max/min frequency?

So as you mentioned in your example above: User space would never know about

1.05 Ghz and 2.3GHz anymore.. Unless you remember it or save it somewhere.

Probably yes.
