Observers are able to see the hands of both players, and while often this doesn't matter, it can in some circumstances. As an example, a player might take the 2nd to last prov while behind on points if they know that their opponent does not have enough money to buy the last prov on their turn.
I've played against a certain player twice, and both times someone (the same person) has immediately joined and observed the table. While I can't prove it, there's a possibility that this player is abusing the system by having the observer tell the player what my hand is.
There's really no reason that observers shouldn't just see the cards that are played as they are played.
