They come with fire, they come with axes... gnawing, biting, breaking, hacking, burning! Destroyers and usurpers, curse them!

Haven't seen this being specifically described in the rules.

The way I play is that you CAN look at any time through:
1) your discard pile, without rearranging it
2) any hero stack
3) destroyed cards pile

And, obviously, you CANNOT* look through:
1) your opponent's discard pile
2) any player's draw pile
3) monsters pile
4) curses pile

*Unless otherwise specified by a card.

We play the same way.

We are also loose on shuffling your discard pile: when it appears you won't have enough cards, e.g. 3-4 left in your deck, reshuffle so you aren't delaying other players. Place the shuffled cards under your remaining deck.

This usually grows as the game plays depending on how many 'draw cards' are floating in your deck.

The risk is something has an action impacting your discard pile. Usually it is obvious, e.g. choose any card to discard, so you can re-separate, find, and re-shuffle. We are casual.

Not only. Say it's your turn next, you have only 3 cards in your draw pile, and so you reshuffle before your turn. On your turn you go to village and level up 3 heroes. Now, they all go to the new discard pile, instead of going to the old discard pile, and so you won't be able to draw any of them for quite a while. Actually, you probably won't be able to draw any heroes for quite a while.

Alternatively, you go to the Dungeon and kill a monster that gives you a disease. Instead of putting the monster and the diseases into your draw deck, where they will start clogging up your play, you put it separately, giving yourself an advantage.

Now what if someone always reshuffles in advance in the second case and never reshuffles in advance in the first case?

Why wouldn't you be able to look through the curses pile? Aren't they all the same?

Diseases and Iron Wind are all the same; Curses and Special Diseases are different, and so should be in a face-down draw deck.
