That statement compares to starting a discussion about what picture
binaries are acceptable when sent to a mailinglist by email. They should
not be sent in the first place without special reasons and circumstances.

Before you know it, in 1999 everybody is sending m$ word documents
(complete with embedded excel sheets, activex binaries and all kinds of
viruses.) and agreeing how "standard" they all are. 

At my work this is already happening, including the part with the viruses.
