I know about the 'if is evil' idea, but so long as you know what will 
happen (i.e. that if blocks don't behave like you might expect them to), 
is there any other inherent problem caused?

Was the decision to not allow many statements inside if blocks basically 
made because to do so would probably mean that configurations might do 
something unconventional (and other than what the administrator probably 
would expect them to do), rather than for any other inherent problem?
