Yes. Great idea. For the hackers and scumware writers that is.

We've tried that already. It was called ActiveX, and it was a bloodbath.

Do you really think it's a great idea to offer local resources to someone else's server without any control whatsoever ? Hackers can already encrypt your data and hold it to ransom, what more do you want to give them ?
