Why is the new PSI release asking admins to decrease protection in Internet Zone for all installed applications?

Would it not better to indicate all url the new PSI need to be able access to
and do the adaptation in Security Zone in more selective fashion?
Better from point of view of system security.

Anybody knows how are all URLs the PSI needs in order all privileges to get granted in more selective fashion, not just allowing whole Internet Zone additional privileges as Secunia is suggesting now to proceed (see appropriate PSI FAQ) ?

I would prefer, instead of opening the Internet Zone in the way the PSI 2.0 needs it just to add all needed urls to trusted sides.
Is more securely.

I don't understand why security experts do not complain this politics.

I've never found it necessary to alter any Internet Explorer settings to use PSI. The suggestions in the FAQs are only for users who are having problems connecting.

If a user has to change their preferred Internet Explorer settings, I would suggest using another account for running PSI. After all, you have to run the user interface as an administrator and nobody surfs the Internet superhighway as an administator these days, do they? That would just be asking for trouble.
