I think it was a mistake to make that change to beds, as originally, it required that you put at least a little effort into building a secure area for your bed.
You could always just build a small hole and cover it with the dirt you just dug out of it, this changes very little in reality. Also, if you don't like the change, don't use a bed without a house first?
Beds are bad overall. They should allow you to skip only 6 hours, not the whole night. They ruin the challenge.
Minecraft has never been challenging, as such beds didn't take away anything. Prior to beds you just dug a hole and sat in it for 10 minutes or mined underground in your perfectly safe mine tunnel. Also, if you don't like beds don't use beds - no ones forcing you too, unless you have extremely poor self control and need an outside source to prevent you from doing something.
To complain about a feature that 100% optional even to the point of never having to make it to begin with is just pointless. There are valid concerns when it comes to Minecrafts difficulty (such as mobs hitting like a wet noodle) but this is not one of them.
