Its a valid point, but border security is dead ( why else would Trump, eh, trump it ); the future is encryption everywhere, even between machines on a lan, which implies all machines need to be capable of ‘continent computing(TM)'.

The dispatcher should be able to identify two (threads, processes, actors) as privacy equivalent and permit intimacies such as smt without surrendering anything. Counter to that, the vendors have been deceptive about these attack surfaces, so at least somebody should be sceptically conservative in response.
