My guess:  because part of the Zope security model is that if you
have access to the file system (ie: external method, python product)
you are allowed to do anything.  It's only when you try to call
that anything from dtml that security gets involved (unless you
code the security yourself).

Under the new security model of "denied unless explicitly permitted",
the current behavior of on-disk dtml methods is arguably wrong.
