Untrusted Font?

What is so messed up with Internet Exploder that we need to be able to trust fonts?

I'm assuming "Untrusted Fonts" used maliciously can brick your PC, run over your cat, and paralyse your mother-in-law? Seriously, why would you be able to execute code hidden in a font with root privilege?
