In principle a very good idea.

In reality - useless - most users just click 'Yes' and allow everything and anything to install. (it's only really good as a fail safe for people who know how to use a computer and accidently download something bad).

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing

Sandboxing an OS (or preferably the user) would be ideal
