That "data point" is not a problem. Maybe Excel 2005 supports "running" a spreadsheet by opening it, doing something and then exiting, and the administrator wants to use such an Excel spreadsheet as a hook "script". We don't need to prevent that. It is no worse than the administrator setting up a buggy batch or Perl or Python script. If it doesn't do what he wants, he will soon find out.
