And about security, data like this is often non-executable like png's, language packs, star or chemical data, etcetera. Though there are exceptions, like Amarok scripts and such. Being able to sign & secure this would be nice, but yes, automatic downloading would probably also add to the safety.
On the other hand, if you see how easy many windows users install or run files they downloaded from a random site or email, it's clear where the biggest security hole is located - Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair.
