Using wallmounted light fixture as plugin lamp, also wall mounted

If the fixture in question is properly grounded and a 3 conductor wire
is used with a 3-pin plug and used as a wallmounted plugin lamp where
is the danger ( with the wire running outside the wall just like a
table lamp) ?
Besides being wall mounted and high reduced any change of anyone
touching it
Why does the code forbid this ? Does it explicitly do so ? Why and
what is the logic behind it ?
thanks
Mike

Probably have to do with UL approval. plugin lamps are not UL approved for permanent installation.
