Well that's like saying "eliminate flaming boulders" or "fire arrows" or whatnot from sieges because they can burn down the city as well if you use them right.
Most of the time I try to spare the peasants of an actual player when I do a siege battle but there are also one or two players that honked me off enough to put their whole town to the torch, and that was with just cannons and fire arrows.
I don't mind the ability to destroy someone's town but I just think it should be a deliberate effort that takes time and not a "WOOSH SPELL boom!" whole town lies in ruins.
