Quoting Holger Levsen <hol...@layer-acht.org>:
the solution to that is to confine each and every application by default and forbid network access. the gnome calculator on every startup fetches currency exchange information because you might use it to calculate that. pretty useful. not.
Problem: As Marco pointed out, users want e.g. access to online lyrics. (I disagree with him, that most users want this. Only few users want such stuff, but somehow they always win. Now let us analyse user behaviour in depth. Every breath you take, every click you make.) We have apparmor (maybe even by default!) to prevent network accesss of a music application, which is perfect for Adam, you and me, but it must also be easy to allow e.g. fetching of lyrics for those who want this. But only the lyrics, and not the cover art. Or vice versa.
