It is not just about security-ignorant users, but basic usability.
I want to be able to read an electronic document sent to me
without any risk that simply opening it will do bad things. Is this too
much to ask? It is an indication of the sad, sad state of this field
that the answer to that appears to be "yes".
To go into another bad real-world analygy, suppose a stationery
manufacturer sells paper sheets that otherwise look great,
are durable etc, but have the unfortunate tendency to ignite if
certain designs are drawn or printed on them. I don't think
they would stay long on the market, even if the manufacturer
put warnings on the packages about what not to print on them.
