Many would probably prefer to beam to within a walking distance of a target, yet not to the target itself; a social code might develop in which it is rude or perhaps illegal to beam directly to pretty much anywhere. Some advanced technology might also be needed to protect the privacy of one's home or workplace.
In the novel Enterprise: The First Adventure, it's forbidden to be able to beam yourself into historical preservation areas like Yellowstone National Park or Banff National Park, because it would disturb the peace and tranquility of the place (presumably except in an emergency). For that reason, comlinks are also forbidden.
