No loop devices

Hello list,
i can't find any loop[0-7] devices in my /dev.

man MAKEDEV tells me:
       std    Creates this group of standard devices: ...
      The loopback disk devices loop0  through  loop7  are  also 
created in the std group.

I thought a

cd /dev && ./MAKEDEV std

should create them but nothing happened.
Is there a special reason that there are no loop devices shipped with
the standard installation?
Security risk?

Kind regards
