Keep in mind that most warning stickers are mostly about reducing liability, and have nothing to do with weather or not something is dangerous. I don't think you'll find much data that shows airbags harm more people than they save. But you can misuse them. Your car has a safety system that includes crumple zones, seat belts and tensioners, and airbags. Tampering with one part of the system can make it less safe. But of course that's your choice. I'd love a glove box in my B4, too, and would also like one in my Mercedes, so I understand the motivation.
