The manpage mentions that when creating an ext3 journal there's a 
difference (.journal file vs. internal inode). All other options should be 
safe to alter with the filesystem mounted. However personally I'd 
recommend to unmount (any) fileystem first before tuning it - if possible.

Crytanalysis doesn't break cryptosystems. Bruce Schneier breaks cryptosystems.
