This is very bad for optics and can be bad for metal parts.

I have switched to lithiums as primaries and also use NiMH (eneloops) as re-chargeables that save me lots of money.
These two types are great in that there are very few cases of leakage.
Keeping your batteries in a separate case is a great idea to isolate them in case something happens.

My point was not only leaking of acids from the battery but also of outgassing. I know that NiMH do not outgass and can be stored in a variety of temperatures that would kill normal alkalines. I have had too many devices destroyed by alkalines to chance it. To date, I have never experienced any issues with either lithiums or NiMH batteries. Been using them for years now.
