It's only DC that's reaching the laptop, so you're correct that it's just the adapter itself that's being protected by the ground pin. It's original purpose was to prevent improperly grounded appliances with exposed metal surfaces like washers, dryers, fridges, lights, etc..., from electrocuting a person. However, since there is no exposed metal on the adapter, there really isn't anything to protect the user from. I wouldn't have any second thoughts using an adapter that didn't have the ground pin, especially if it used a normal plug that didn't block other outlets like the big wedge we have now.

I got a really portable Wall Adaptor with my Dell Mini 10V. No brick adaptor. Almost like a Mac-like charger. Any idea where I can get another one? There's a Dell part number but Dell Australia doesn't want to sell me one... .

Not exactly what you're after, but I posted this a while back, and these are still going strong.
