For example, why does Firefox allow any ol' plugin to connect out to any ol' site without first asking the user to confirm that the plugin is allowed to do so?
Because users would immediately be bombarded by so many of these messages that they'd soon learn to just click 'yes' at all times? (Hell, they've been well-trained to do that already by other equally useless 'security' warning dialogs.)
