Electrical warning ?

A while back there was discussion about removing the crank pulley bolt by
blocking a socket wrench and cranking the engine to break it loose...with
the coil wire disconnected.

But there's a warning in Bentley (ch 25)...
"DO NOT crank engine with high tension lead disconnected"

What is the risk?
Is it likely that a voltage surge could fry something electrical?
