It is beyond my comprehension as to why anyone would want JS capability in
DOS which would by its very nature open one up to the possibility of
malicious code execution.

Is it not the fact that DOS browsers are immune to JS attacks one of the
major reasons why we continue to them for all of those sites where it's
still possible to do so ?

<paranoid mode> ;-)

And even tho this particular project is not for a browser... it still has the possibility of malicious code execution if one would execute said code at the
DOS command prompt.

And since this particular project is indeed aimed at "non-programmers",
virtually all of those using it will be completely oblivious to the fact
that the sample JS code they got from say a 'friend' on twitter
and then execute with DOjs is actually going to reformat their hard drive.
