I concur with Barry.   I fear that the path Steve apparently
wants to go down --as I understand it, to incorporate warnings
in security considerations simply because a mechanism can be
used to transfer bad stuff -- leads to madness.   But I'm happy
to have you discuss it with him to see if you, together, can
find an acceptable basis for moving forward.
