Remoting only works with admin privileges (by default). Within a domain, Kerberos is used to authenticate machines - domain members are trusted and may contact WinRM (but not run scripts yet - that depends on the user priv's).
BTW, on server OS WinRM is enabled by default.
So, with the default settings, I cannot see any risk in enabling WinRM.
