No it isn't. It's like giving your keys to a cleaning company to clean your premises.

IF you trust the cleaning company, and you believe the risk that a criminal will not join their company with a fake reference, and you believe that there isn't much risk that the cleaner will not let a stranger into your house, and you believe that the cleaner will not be mugged and your keys stolen then you are happy to do that.

Therefore many people take that risk with a cleaning company but they might not give them keys to the cash room in the finance office.

There is the opportunity to use specified hosted scripts if you understand the risks and have decided that they are acceptable. However using a link to an online library with no from some new startup is probably to be avoided, I would suggest.
