I still don't understand.  Is it prudent to have such a clause, because
someone else could embed a bad script, to be sure we are safe?  (How
could that happen, if someone else causes the problem and distributes
that?)  Or would it be prudent to do so, to allow / make it easier for
others to embed code, as they would only like to do so, if they have
such a clause?

I'm sorry, I still don't get the point.

Best regards,
