So - no load revving - is it a bad thing?

I have been wondering about the implications of no load revving. While some people have said that it is not great for the engine, aside from normal wear due to running the car in high RPM ranges, what hard evidence is there that it actually creates a high-wear situation? Or does it even? I've heard people say that it's bad, and I've heard theories, but no good reasons as to why exactly it is. Let's assume a standard transmission w/out a park/neutral rev limiter (like my old BMW). Thanks guys...
