No, I do not miss the point. I do not say that this is particularly good,
but it is not really worse than an locally installed application with 'auto-update' feature.
I am always scared when I see what my printer driver software is doing ;-)

Besides, I do not understand why oracle choose such defaults. I guess it would
be much safer to only allow specific applets.
