The comments in the article are accurate, but the choice of 
facts is conspicuous. This, given all the other horrible 
what-if scenarios out there. Also, publicly riffing 
on specific technical issues doesn't address the underlying
causes of the problems. 

I think the only problem with the comments is that they over-estimate
the benefit of that level of security relative to the overhead it 
requires.
