Yeah, I can agree with that. But, it seems like they'd focus on creating the smallest exposed footprint and work on that instead of things like the paste feature.
I can't actually imagine the security people explaining how the paste feature could be dangerous.

Security guy: So, yes, we must remove the user's ability to paste into the pwd field because it is extremely dangerous. It's huge security hole.
Bank's IT Manager: Can you give me 2 examples of how pasting into that field would be dangerous?
Security guy: Well, they could paste special extended characters, maybe?
Bank IT Manager: Shouldn't the back-end handle that?
Security guy: well, they could paste um...errrr...well, pasting is just bad that's all. Andy why would any legitimate user want to paste? I think only crackers paste. Hmmm | :|
