Exactly. An amazing number of people these days seem to gloss over the fact that what we need is not better security (well, that too) but responsibly designed appliances that interlock out locally (and in hardware, without any ability to override it) things that are "not supposed to ever happen or else". That would still not account for wrong _combinations_ of otherwise unrelated stuff ending up doing some damage, but it would be a damn good start.
