Ah, interesting. The installer recommends that you do make it read-only:

   // Warn about settings.php permissions risk
   $settings_file = './'. conf_path() .'/settings.php';
   if (!drupal_verify_install_file($settings_file, 
     drupal_set_message(st('All necessary changes to %file have been 
made, so you should now remove write permissions to this file. Failure 
to remove write permissions to this file is a security risk.', 
array('%file' => $settings_file)), 'error');

So, my bad. I don't see why, however, you couldn't turn it back to 
write, add your extra databases, then turn it back to read only.
