Actually, I have tought it over and this is what I found: I understand why a macro language must be capable of reading stuff (even remotely, and it would be polite to ask the user for permission), of creating one (or two max) new document -- especially if the original document is a template, and of saving itself (or the created document, if the original document is a template) to the disk -- no overwriting allowed and certainly no transfer of macros allowed. But I can't find any reason why a macro language should be capable of writing anything.
