With things like amnesia and judas, it comes down to how much I trust the player.  I wouldn't allow those qualities in a one-shot game (unless it was clearly a no-holds-barred type of thing), and I probably would try to steer new players away from them, but I've had good results with both.  Still don't allow borrowed time, though.

Amnesia has nothing to do with the GM trusting the player, but rather the other way around. If he takes Amnesia, the player is putting an enormous amount of trust into that GM, especially if it's the bigger version.

To clarify, I trusted the player to roll with whatever I threw at him and help develop the story.  Having a character with amnesia who doesn't actually contribute to the telling of his character's story is a drag.
