Is it really so bad to leave a toaster plugged in?

Assume the toaster in question is brand new, and the owners don't leave food in it, or wander off while it's in use. All the toaster fire incidents I can find seem to be related to one of those two causes...so if we use common sense, is there much risk in leaving it plugged in?
