Default High rep oly lifts

Forgive me if this has been posted elsewhere. I am studying to be a strength and conditioning specialist and I am really curious about some of crossfits high rep oly lifting (grace=30 rep clean&press @ 135# and another 30 reps on snatch). I understand crossfit says these are metcons and trying to produce more power and rate of force developement. But from what I understand you should be using oly lifts for more explosive power/strength. Are these dangerous or are they ok for the metcon they are supposed to be?
