They usually nothing to worry about.
However, if I'm about to hand over serious cash then I'd always want to see a photo of the inside to make sure that there's no serious damage to the wood.

I dont think so as the body is supported. I have read that these cracks happen on softer wood bodies like basswood due to carrying the guitar by the neck without supporting the body. Not vertically but carrying it horizontally by the neck without supporting the body. The weight of the body puts stress on the neck joint.
Just food for thought.
Interesting. I guess they could reduce this risk by designing some kind of integrated handle in the guitar itself?
