Just a little comment; the unix wisdom is to never ever allow code to be 
shipped in the same container as data. This basic principle is violated 
and thus you can wait for such problems.
IMO its not just the media that makes an issue about this as the majority 
of users will always answer 'yes' if they want to continue opening 
something. So while your blog is technically totally correct, the media 
is also totally correct that this is a real issue.

Anyway, that's just how I look at it.  Take it however you want :)
