Oops, you're right. It appears that the warnings do not happen for IE's
so-called "Internet zone". IE's default restrictions appear to be most
strict when loading a file from the local file system, more relaxed when
loading from a domain that falls under IE's "Local intranet" group, and
most relaxed for domains in its "Internet" group.
I was expecting the opposite and had tested by loading a file from my
local file system.
