Its not like scenes get tagged with random viral scripts 'accidentally'?!
I don't see the use for normal production software except in a special debug scene loader capacity (Softimage has stuff like this-but its a preference).
The latest version just released and I haven't test it yet, however I do follow the developer mailing list. It has been discussed regarding this, and I don't remember the general consensus.
But some of the options does involve directories. I think one of the solution was that you can set the directories as 'safe'. This way any new blend you download off the net can be saved into directories that is 'not safe' until you analyzed the code and know its safe.
By labeling directories as safe, this security will not mess with your current projects and what not.
Check the 'excluded path'.
I hope it helps!
