i've scraped together a pretty decent little PA (yorkville E15 tops & LS608 subs/mixwizard board/rane processing/powerlight amps) by doing just that

I respectfully disagree. One of the feet is adjustable in height. Not a lot, but in quite precise way. If you need more, you can always stuff some bits of cardboard under the wobbly foot like you would with a table.

I used one for 1,5 years with a 82lbs and deep 410, and never had the slightest stability issues, even on stages that were wobbly themselves. I cannot imagine any bump toppling it over that wouldn't topple over any system on a speaker stand.

Transportability was actually a big plus for me: it folds flat and is really light, so it is easy to carry with one hand while carrying something else with the other.
For shows were looks mattered, I would drape a black cloth over it.

Only reason I'm not using it anymore is that I went to two 210's stacked vertically, so I don't need to raise any speaker anymore.
