Is it desirable (and unproblematic) to make Internet access to the OWA and RWW sites more 'cryptic' than "/exchange" and "/remote" ?

Hello experts. Acknowledging that SBS has been well designed in the area of security, given the fact that public DNS info is so...public and the standard format of the URLs for web access to Exchange and the RWW is generally well known, I was curious if substituting something more cryptic for the familiar "/exchange" and "/remote" has any value in adding another bit of security by making it harder for the would-be hacker to find the respective web pages? Or does anybody out there make changes just to simplify the addresses? If so, does it simply come down to changing the site settings in IIS and/or adding pointers in the internal DNS? Are there any negative ramifications to the overall configuration of SBS, as I DO appreciate such a change would be a non-wizard based alteration? Thanks for educating me on this.
