answer for line #1 of your question is "yes."
If the requirement for assurance is more reasonble -- I.e.;
you're not dealing with launch codes, and there's some willingness
on the part of upper management to accept some risk, then you might
What tends to happen is that the requirements for the firewall
become "we want to do news/mail/mosaic/everything and we must totally
eliminate risk" -- that's simply not realistic.
